    Typically, yes. It varies by state though. From wiki:
    "Activation criteria for Silver Alerts vary from state to state. Some states limit Silver Alerts to persons over the age of 65, who have been medically diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, dementia or a mental disability. Other states expand Silver Alert to include all children and adults with mental or developmental disabilities."

    According to FB chatter Destinee has a history of running away. There was a silver alert for her in May and July and according to the mother of Kani she is back home. I can't find anything on the other two.
