FOUND: Police seeking assistance in locating St. Catharines 77 year old with dementia.


During the course of an exhaustive search, it was learned that Mr. Snejdar was registered with "Project Lifesaver".  Upon being made aware of this information, members of the Niagara Regional Police Service utilized specially outfitted mobile receivers and were able to safely locate Mr. Snejdar.
Project Lifesaver Niagara is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting and responding to the challenge caregivers have of finding loved ones who due to their cognitive ability have a
tendency to wander.

Participants registered with Project Lifesaver Niagara wear a personalized bracelet. It is a one ounce battery operated radio wrist transmitter that emits a unique automatic tracking signal
every second, 24 hours a day.

Project Lifesaver equips and trains law enforcement agencies in an active response system to help with the increasing problem of locating wandering people before they fall victim to the
elements, accidents or predators.

Project Lifesaver saves lives and further serves the community by significantly reducing the need for extensive search and rescue operations that are often extremely costly in human and
financial terms.
