Normal What is the AMBER Alert System?/ Amber alerts to your cell phone

Post by Guest on Sun Nov 29, 2009 11:34 am



The AMBER Alert System began in 1996 when Dallas-Fort Worth broadcasters teamed up with local police to develop an early warning system to help find abducted children. AMBER stands for America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response and was created as a legacy to 9-year old Amber Hagerman, who was kidnapped while riding her bicycle in Arlington, Texas, and then brutally murdered. Other states and communities soon instituted similar plans as the idea was adopted across the nation. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and the U.S. Department of Justice assumed responsibility for co-ordination at the national level.

This beats the pants off of a flashing billboard on a highway, esp since every second counts.

Normal Group Supports Mandatory Amber Alerts

Jessica's Law Now Involved In Search For Missing Baby Gabriel Johnson

POSTED: 8:22 am MST March 11, 2010
UPDATED: 8:50 am MST March 11, 2010

PHOENIX -- A person close to the search for missing baby Gabriel Johnson plans to ask President Barack Obama to weigh in on the fact that an Amber Alert was not issued.

Gabriel was last seen with his mother, Elizabeth Johnson, in San Antonio, Texas, on the day after Christmas.

Johnson now sits in a Maricopa County jail on charges relating to her son's disappearance.

Mark Palmer, who is a member of Jessica's Law Now -- an organization that helps families of missing or exploited children -- said he will ask Obama to make Amber Alerts mandatory across the country.

"If it was in place, mandatory, baby Gabriel would not be in the situation he's in now," Palmer said. "Somer Thompson would be alive today, like a lot of other children."

Currently, Amber Alert standards and laws vary between states.

In Wednesday's news conference, Palmer also gave details on a fundraiser to help Gabriel's father, Logan McQueary, in his search.
