MCLEAN COUNTY -- The county emergency management agency has a new missing persons tracking device. They'll be used for children with autism and the elderly with Alzheimer's or dementia. The McLean County EMA has been testing the device for about four months.

They say these tracking devices will help with faster response times and prevent tragedies. The tracking system costs about $200. The agency hopes to gain enough interest to help lower costs.
