Only in Florida

Almost everybody is familiar with the term "Amber Alert" to denote a missing child. It is named after Amber Hagerman, a child abducted and murdered in Texas.  In Florida we also have "Silver Alert" to alert of a missing senior citizen. I kid you not. I noticed a "Silver Alert" flashed on I-95 this evening as we were driving home from Miami. (Grandson's fifth birthday.) When we got home I 'googled' the term 'silver alert' and find the following on the Florida Department of Law Enforcement:
A Florida Silver Alert has been issued for Louis Demeo.  He was last seen in the area of the 4000 block of Pinecrest Circle in Delray Beach, wearing a blue sports coat, a yellow and white button up shirt, dark brown dress slacks and brown shoes with tassels on them.  He may be traveling in a beige 2005 Dodge Caravan, Florida tag number S203IV.
