A bill that's been sent to Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour would set up a Silver Alert system to notify officials when an elderly person or someone with dementia or other cognitive impairment goes missing.

The system would be similar to the state's Amber Alert, which notifies law officers and the public when a child is missing.

The House passed the final version of the bill Thursday. The Senate passed it last week.
