Ashanti Alert Act

Discussion in 'Community Outreach' started by ima.grandma, Jan 3, 2019.

    i don’t know where else to post this but i’ll shate a little bit of this important development.
    The Ashanti Alert Act will develop a federal alert system for missing or endangered adults ages 18 to 64. Right now there are no alert systems for missing adults falling into that age category.

    Marsha Loritz is founder of Wisconsin Missing Persons Advocacy.

    "Maybe they suffer from mental illness. Maybe they're in an abusive relationship. Whatever, there's many reasons that a person goes missing," Loritz says.

    Ashanti Billie is the reason this act was passed. The FBI says Billie was 19 years old when she was abducted in Norfolk, Va., on September 18, 2017. Her body was recovered 11 days later.

    She was too old for an Amber Alert, too young for a Silver Alert.

    This is great news! There was definitely a void.

    do you have a thread set up here that lists different categories of alerts?
    i’d never heard of this young woman’s name.
    i remember participating in a thread about various state-specific alerts i’d not ever heard of. i was happy to read about the designations but i had some trouble distinguishing them, especially the differentiation and order of precedence between federal and state alerts.

    Hi there miss amazed. It’s okay, I’ve been out of the loop due to health issues of my own and my mama’s. She’s been severely ill with two surgeries. I’m trying to get back to being myself. I hope you are doing well. Don’t work too hard. Thanks for your caring. Pam
