“SILVER ALERT” PROPOSAL CREATED FROM MISSING MOVILLE MAN’S CASE

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.
