Endangered Missing Persons Alert

Similar to wandering incidents in older adults with Alzheimerís and related dementias, those with intellectual disabilities (Autism, Developmental Disorders etc.), are also prone to wandering into unsafe environments. In year 2011, Texas AMBER Alert legislation was updated to include alerts for missing persons (of any age) with an intellectual disability. In order to avoid public confusion with AMBER Alerts for abducted children, the name ďEndangered Missing Persons AlertĒ was selected.
