Delaware State Police cancelled a Gold Alert for a woman who had been missing for over a day. The 23-year-old woman was found in Prince Frederick, Maryland. She was located over four hours from her Frankford, Delaware home.
Maryland State Police notified Delaware State Police around 2:15 p.m. that they had located the missing woman. No other details were readily available. Maryland State Police could not release any details about the condition of the woman. Kidnapping did not seem to be the case.
She had been last seen at her 30000 block of Wilson Lane residence in Frankford, Delaware. The 23-year-old woman’s family was worried for her welfare because of her mental status, a reporter was told by the state police spokesman captain. The police believe she left purposely and was not kidnapped.
Gold Alerts are similar bulletins to Amber Alerts. The main difference between the two is that Amber Alerts are for missing children. The Gold Alerts are solely for missing adults or senior citizens whose family, hospital officials, or police officials believe the individual’s safety or health could be in jeopardy. There was no evidence of sex crime.
Usually a Gold Alert is activated for an individual with a mental impartment such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, developmental disabilities, or suffering from suicidal tendencies. These individuals are generally unable to find their way home. There are only 11 states with Gold Alerts established. Other than Delaware, they are Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, Kentucky, Ohio, Rhode Island, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida.
