Utah State Representative Lee Perry has introduced H.B. 215, a bill to create a Silver Alert program in the Beehive State.
H.B. 215 requires the Department of Public Safety to develop an alert system similar to the Amber Alert System for endangered adults; and requires that the system utilize highway signage in the geographical area where the 16 person went missing. The bill defines the term “endangered adult” as a person 60 years of age or older with dementia.
