house Bill H.R. 5075

Establishing a National Alert System for Missing Adults

Argument in favor

There are missing person alerts for children and seniors, but no equivalent for missing adults. This means that when adults ages 18 to 65 go missing, there’s no national alert system to help law enforcement find them through civilian tips and heightened awareness by the general public. This bill would change that by creating Ashanti Alerts that apply to adults.

Good idea...adults are just as important as kids and should be looked for just as children. I’m surprised they haven’t already had this considering the sex and human traffickers out there

Yes. Too many people, mostly women are disappearing and no one does anything.

Women in particular seem most frequently at risk of disappearance, and are often found dead if their bodies are found at all. This alert system definitely needs to be developed and promoted.

Argument opposed

Existing channels, such as social media and local news, are already enough to help local law enforcement get the word out about missing persons of any age. It’s not necessary to build and maintain a new missing person alert network that’ll require federal money and employee time to manage.

If we ignore the national debt it goes away, right?

Why? We are $21,000,000,000,000 in DEBT and haven’t had a budget in over 10 years for the Federal Government. Let’s get some focus on what is important and stop playing these games on feel good legislation.

    We’ve got one for young kids and one for elderly adults with special needs. Why not do the same for the people in between?

    Since we have an Amber alert system for missing children, there’s no reason why we can’t have an alert system for missing adults. Adults can be incredibly vulnerable as well!

    there national warning system that is used for tornado, hurricanes nuckler war, war, terrorist attacks, and for amber alerts child kidnapping no reason it can not be used for more things. it does not raise cost because the warning system is already in place - just getting more bang for the buck.

    Many adults go missing every day. A lot of them are native American women why seem to be of no concern to anyone. Living in MOntana many of these women are completely ignored. We need to try and find out what has happened to any person ( Child or Adult) who has gone missing. There families suffer if they don't know what has happened to them.

    This should be a no brainer with today’s technology. A national alert system should be in place for any emergencies that could prevent any victims.

    Really makes sense. Some of the adults may drive off to another state and not know where he/she's going. National alert may help spot the driver drivning wiht no direction.

    This is potentially life saving legislation for missing adults. Vote yes.
