JOLIET, Ill. – State Rep. Natalie Manley, D-Joliet, will be joined by state Sen. Daniel Biss, D-Evanston, the Illinois Alzheimer’s Association, the Illinois State Police and Romeoville Mayor John Noak to announce the launch of the state’s Silver Search program, an effort to help law enforcement find missing persons with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

“As demographics change and Illinois gains a larger senior population, elected officials have a responsibility to make sure our communities have the resources they need to keep up with these changes,” Manley said. “Silver Search gives law enforcement additional ways to help find individuals with dementia that go missing by notifying the public with the name and description of the missing person through highway signs, billboards and lottery machines.”

Manley sponsored legislation that helped create the Silver Search program, which will go into full effect on Nov. 1.
