NY unveils amber system alert for adults

Albany, New York - October 25, 2011

New York has a new system that aims to protect vulnerable adults.

It's similar to an amber alert system that sends out alerts when a child is abducted, but the missing adult alerts are for grownups with impairments -- like Alzheimers or a brain injury -- that get lost. The information will go out over the same networks used for amber alerts.
