The program collects information in advance of a wandering incident that is both critical in locating a missing person and required to launch an Alert. Collected information is treated as confidential unless needed to locate a missing person. Applications are available online at http://www.ci.friendswood.tx.us/shepherd-program/ and at the Friendswood Police Department, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Participation in the Shepherd Program is voluntary and free of charge.
Endangered Missing Persons Alert Network bridges the gap between Amber Alerts (which are issued in the event of a child abduction) and Silver Alerts (which are issued for persons over the age of 65 who are diagnosed with a mental impairment.
If a person does not fit the criteria for a Silver Alert or Amber Alert, but has an increased risk of wandering away from home due to Autism or an other intellectual disability, consider submitting their information for inclusion in the Shepherd Program. The Program application will be used to quickly issue an Endangered Missing Persons Alert in the event he or she wanders away from home.
