Over 1,000 people in Price County have Alzheimer's Disease or a related form of dementia. Of those, approximately 60% will develop the tendency to wander. The task of searching for wandering or lost individuals with Alzheimer's, Autism, Down's Syndrome, dementia or other cognitive conditions is a growing and serious responsibility.

Without effective procedures and equipment, searches can involve multiple agencies, hundreds of officers, countless man hours and thousands of dollars. More importantly, because time is of the essence, every minute lost increases the risk of a tragic outcome.
