Florida Silver Alert Law
The Silver Alert law in Florida currently blocks law enforcement from searching for a missing senior that was not traveling by motor vehicle. People travel by foot all the time and may have been driven by another person to a destination and walked out of sight. There are many ways that seniors, especially those with mental illness, can be abducted.
A situation has happened recently where a woman with dementia was walking through a plaza by herself and the sheriff’s department said that only a 1.5-mile radius would be searched because she was not in a vehicle. It is believed that she got into a car with a stranger for a ride and she has not been heard from since. This situation is very serious and should have been escalated throughout the state of Florida.
If you want to make an impact, sign this petition to escalate the matter to the Governor and state senate to get the Silver Alert law changed. You can sign the petition here!
