A SafetyNet Hat Trick
Rescue Story 10/04/2019
On Friday Oct 4, three individuals enrolled in the SafetyNet Program in two states went missing. All three individuals were located in under one hour each with two being found within minutes of being reported missing thanks to immediate notification to 911, quick actions by family members and caregivers, and quick response by law enforcement.
At about 6:15 PM on Friday evening, an 11 year old boy with autism went missing in Western Massachusetts and was located within five minutes. At about 7:00 PM, a 79 year old woman with dementia went missing in Boca Raton, FL and was found in about ten minutes and at about 7:30 PM, a 68 year old man with dementia went missing in the Greater Boston area and was located in under an hour.
SafetyNet saves search agencies time, money and manpower and provides peace of mine to caregivers. It is also a proven lifesaver.
