Ohio Missing Adult Alert

In response to growing numbers of missing adults with memory impairment, the state of Ohio has passed the "Ohio Missing Adult Alert" program which went into effect June 20, 2008. This alert system is similar to Amber Alert in that emergency personnel across the state will be notified through this system in the event that an adult with a mental impairment has gone missing.
