Current Bill Summary

SB 453 - This act changes the name of the Amber alert system to the Amber and silver alert system and expands the system to include assistance in identifying and locating a missing endangered person, defined as a person who: (1) does not meet the criteria for an Amber alert; (2) is missing under unexplained, involuntary, or suspicious circumstances; and (3) is believed to be in danger because of age, guardianship, health, disability, environmental or weather conditions, or is in the company of a potentially dangerous person. A missing endangered person does not include a runaway. Additionally, this act requires missing persons reports to include the name, address, and phone number of the guardian, if any, of the missing person.

This act is substantially similar to HB 679 (2015).
