Senior citizens who become missing and have some medical conditions may soon have similar protection as kids who become missing.

The Virginia House and Senate have passed legislation that would enable the Virginia State Police to set up the "Senior Alert" system.

It would work sort of like the "Amber Alert" for children. The program would coordinate immediate response in finding missing Virginians 60 and older.

The governor is expected to sign the legislation which could go into effect July 1, 2007.
