CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan has signed into law a bill that strengthens the state’s protections for residents who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease or dementia and go missing.

The bill eases the process of filing a missing-person’s report. It allows an alert to be made at the request of an individual’s caregiver, shortens the requirements to update the federal database from 72 to 48 hours and changes the address listed from domicile to last known whereabouts to account for travel.

The Democratic governor signed the bill Friday.
