Have you got an alert set up Spam so that you are instantly notified of any old dribble reported in the press about this case?  Or are you just a regular Sun reader?

I was just scrolling through news items & saw the article.

I think the cllr raises & interesting yet controversial point.

Why not just put a gps tracker on everyone at birth and be done with it.

Indeed, why not.

No more missing people.

Apart from it’s a complete infringement of civil liberties, and means that the state could monitor your whereabouts at all times a la Big Brother I’m all for it.

A GPS bracelet, belt or necklace doesn't sound like a terrible idea to me.
Although the obvious problem is that this can be easily removed.

I have a relative who has severe dementia, she recently wandered off but thankfully was found by a relative.
The level of her disability is such that she probably wouldn't have been able to communicate her name or address had she been found by a stranger.

But I'm not sure I could approve of a mark on the forehead & right hand.

lol  tattoo...behave.


Yes, Housebound people with mobility issues are given an alarm which they wear around their neck to press if they fall. it  immediately transfers a call to a person who can talk to the injured person.  Perhaps disguised as a pierced earning? I see many babies with pierced ears in summer time on holiday!
