MADISON - The statewide Silver Alert program -- to protect Wisconsin seniors -- launches today.

Similar to an Amber Alert, Silver Alerts will go out by email, text message or fax through the Wisconsin Crime Alert Network to notify the public that an adult with Alzheimer's, dementia, or other permanent cognitive impairment is missing.  

Anyone may subscribe online to receive Silver Alerts and Crime Alerts for free by email, text or fax through www.wisconsincrimealert.gov.
