(UNDATED) - Indiana's new Silver Alert Program is in place.

State Police are waiting to assess the impact.

First Sergeant Dave Bursten says he can't predict how often you'll be alerted to a missing person, most likely elderly but possibly a younger adult, the program applies to anyone 18 years of age or older.

Unlike an amber alert, a silver alert will not activate the broadcast industry's emergency alert system.

It's up to individual radio and television stations to decide when and how to interrupt regular programming.
