SANTA FE- At a recent press conference to announce the implementation of the new Silver Alert, Department of Public Safety Cabinet Secretary Gorden Eden had a chance to visit with Jack Fussell. Fussell is in the process of running across America in support of the Alzheimer’s Association.
The man with the infectious smile started on the east coast and is now walking, jogging and running to Monterey, California.
Silver Alert was passed into law in this last legislative session and went into effect July 1. The alert is similar to an Amber Alert but focuses on people over 50 years of age who suffer from Alzheimer’s or a diminished mental capacity.
