You've likely heard of the Amber Alert for when a child goes missing. A message is sent to law enforcement and media across a wide area to get information out and coordinate a response. Ohio is on the verge of doing something similar if an elderly person goes missing. The Ohio Legislature passed a measure to create what's called a "silver alert" system. And last Friday Governor Strickland signed it into law. Nina Keller is with the Area Agency on Aging Region 7. That's in Southern Ohio. And she's one of the people who testified in Columbus in support of this bill.
