The Iowa Senate has passed a bill that would create a new system for so-called “Silver Alerts” in Iowa.
Senator Bill Anderson of Pierson pushed the proposal because of a request from a missing Moville man’s family:
OC………..such a thing. :24
Robinson remains missing to this day.
The senate approved the bill 49-0.
Woodbury County Sheriff Dave Drew supports the proposal:
OC…to the families. :18
Drew says Dale Robinson’s case remains open:
OC……FOR THE FAMILY. ;10
If the bill gets approval from the Iowa House and the governor signs it, the DOT would use the electronic message boards along Iowa roadways to post a so-called “Silver Alert” to help locate an elderly person with dementia.
The billboards are already used for so-called “Amber Alerts” when children are abducted.
