    U.S. has Silver Alert for missing seniors -- why not Canada?

    I saw the daughters on TV asking for any information about their dad. It was heartbreaking. I hope they are looking at where homeless people are. I do hope someone took him under their wing and he's warm and safe.

    The Silver Alert is such a wonderful tool, hopefully it's use (or something similar) is adopted in Canada. The elderly, especially those with dementia/cognitive impairment, are SO vulnerable. My heart always breaks when I see families who are missing a loved one in these circumstances!

    I hope every person who hears the appeal looks on their property, as likely as it is that he's hidden in a shed or a garage, it's also just as likely he laid down in the grass or a sidewalk if he became cold and tired. It's way too cold out there!

    I'm assuming they've checked hospital and such for "John Does" or even someone confused who matches his description who was brought in and possibly admitted under a different name. Shelters would be another possibility.

    I apologize that that I haven't properly read all of the links yet, but do we know his level of impairment?

    Wow, so glad it turned out this way, in this cold it was not looking promising,imo.
    Goes to show you how far a person can travel when they have something set in their mind, quite sweet that he went to the old cottage he helped build- amazing really that Mr Filazzola hitch-hiked there!
