The BC Silver alert is voluntary and op-in only. You will only receive an alert if you subscribe via one of the following four alerting channels. When you get an alert, check to see if you are in the same area as the missing person. If you spot someone, follow these instructions.



Email is the most reliable way to get updates on missing persons. When we post, you’ll get a quick email with a summary and a link to the article.
