Like an amber alert is for missing children, a silver alert is for older adults or people with mental disabilities such as Alzheimer or dementia.

A Silver Alert is a public notification system that broadcasts information about seniors with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other mental disabilities, to help in their safe return.

Except for senior citizens, and mostly used for those with dementia or Alzheimers disease.

Each state varies in their criteria involving a missing loved one who may qualify for a Silver Alert. It is not only for elderly, in many states, but also for those who have cognitive disorders or disabilities such as developmentally delayed, autism, stroke patients, etc. So in fact it can be anyone over the age of 18 that may qualify for the Silver Alert who goes missing and has met the criteria.
