What is a CLEAR Alert?

A CLEAR Alert is similar to an AMBER Alert, but it covers missing adults.

Its mission is to save the lives of missing adults between 18 and 64 years old who are strongly believed to be in imminent danger. It’s issued within 72 hours of the disappearance.

The acronym CLEAR stands for the names of women who were kidnapped and killed in Texas: Cayley Mandadi, D'lisa Kelley, Erin Castro and Ashanti Billie. The R stands for all of the rest.

The bill to create CLEAR Alerts became law on Sept. 1, 2019.
