    Ok. Does thia guy actuallymeet the legal rrequirements for a silver alert…because the last lady didn’t. We can’t just chase people down because they’re older and we don’t like their choices. Seriously.

      @Tonya….Seriously, you don’t know what you are talking about! You don’t have the facts to the situation of this missing elderly person. It’s better safe then sorry. I have a strong feeling that if this was your relative you would be all over the news about it. The one thing I am surprised about is that a whole week has gone by before the alert was put out. A lot can take place in one week.

        @cv….seriously, it is you that doesn’t know what you are talking about. The last silver alert was for a woman who did not have a clear diagnosis of mental instability. I have yet to hear that this man has one either. Thats part of the requirement for a silver alert. And as far as my loved ones go….my dad is older than this guy. He travels all over the US. Hes kind of a free spirit and we dont always know if hes in town or out and about. If I ever even considered putting oyt a silver alert on that man, he’d whoop my ***. Good grief. Doesn’t anyone know any liberty loving eccentric independent older people anymore?!
