NBC4 has highlighted families over the years dealing with Alzheimer’s Disease and the Autism spectrum.
In some if those cases, the child or adult has a risk of wandering.
“It may take days to find someone. Literally with this technology, [it takes] 20 minutes to an hour to find someone,” Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott said.
That technology is called Project Lifesaver.
The radio frequency equipment can be put onto a persons wrist or ankle.
If someone is reported missing the Franklin County Sheriff can put in the frequency for the unit and track sounds that can lead them right to them.
