The family of a missing person can rest easy tonight after Brockton Police reunited them with the help of a program available in their community.

According to Brockton Police, Project Lifesaver is an electronic monitoring system that sends out a radio frequency to help police locate loved ones.

Officer Jodi Monteiro and other officers sprang into action after receiving a call from the grandson, who reported his grandmother, Aureliana Gomes, 61, missing for an hour.

She suffers from a mild stage of dementia, according to police.

With a transmitter in hand, Officer Monteiro took only minutes to locate Aureliana over a mile away. Aureliana’s daughter, Rita, was ecstatic and said she was grateful to Officer Monteiro and the Brockton Police.
