Washington state’s Indigenous person alerts were launched on July 1. Governor Jay Inslee signed the bill creating the first-in-the-nation alert system last March.
The designation of “Missing Indigenous Persons” has been added to a number of alert systems that already exist in Washington state. Those include Amber Alerts for children and Silver Alerts for missing senior citizens.
