Color-Coded Alerts

Indiana now has three color-coded "alert" warnings for missing persons -- and the spectrum doesn't stop there.

A day after Fishers teenager Peyton Riekhof disappeared last week, State Police issued a Silver Alert, the state notification system usually used for missing senior citizens.

Anyone 18 or older doesn't qualify for the better-known Amber Alert for missing children.

A new state law established a third alert: a Blue Alert, when a police officer is missing, injured or killed.
