Tracking bracelets urged in wake of woman's disappearance
The disappearance of an 84-year-old Irvington woman has advocates for the elderly urging all families to consider potentially life-saving tracking bracelets.
Betty Iannarelli suffers from Alzheimer's disease and hasn't been seen since surveillance images captured her walking along Main Street in Irvington in the early morning hours of Aug. 5.
In Westchester County, a program called Project Life Saver allows participants to sign up for the tracking devices. Each bracelet has its own radio frequency number and allows the police to zero in on their location.
Officials say Iannarelli was not wearing a tracking bracelet.
