Illinois' new "Silver Search" helps find missing people suffering from Alzheimer's

And within that number, it's estimated that 60% of them "will wander at some point during the diagnosis".

IL law enforcement will now get new training on how they can help people find loved ones with dementia who go missing.

Protecting the most vulnerable of senior citizens is the goal of a new campaign now underway in IL.

According to Illinois State Police, 2,500 officers will receive new curriculum which includes warning signs to look for and procedures for activating a search.

The campaign will feature ads on radio, TV, billboards, social media and other sources. This advisory will alert the public through IDOT highway signs and Illinois Lottery Terminals in addition to the Silver Search website and social media channels.

The "Silver Search" campaign launched on Wednesday, November 1st, which is the start of Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month. Daniel Biss said. "These are our family members, our neighbors, and our friends, and we owe them the security that Silver Search provides".

And while some states already have similar programs, IL officials believe Silver Search can be an example of a campaign that works to assist law enforcement and protects the hundreds of thousands diagnosed with these devastating conditions.

The Silver Search Task Force in Illinois, which includes the help of the Alzheimer's Association, Illinois State Police, Illinois Broadcasters Association and other groups, came up with the program.
