What is an Endangered Person Advisory?

Rather than an AMBER Alert — which is strictly for "when a child has been abducted and it is believed that the child is in danger of serious bodily harm or death" — an Endangered Person Advisory spans across all ages and is issued under broader circumstances. 

These include missing people who are endangered due to custody disputes, disabilities, diseases and more as well as adult abductees and missing older people.
