What is an AMBER Alert?

An AMBER Alert is a message delivered by an alert system that asks the public for help in finding missing children.

It launched in 1996 when Dallas-Fort Worth broadcasters teamed with local police to develop an early warning system.

According to the AMBER Alert website, ...AMBER stands for America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response and was created as a legacy to 9-year-old Amber Hagerman, who was kidnaped while riding her bicycle in Arlington, Texas, and then brutally murdered....

The requirements needed in order to issue an AMBER Alert are as follows:

The abducted child must be 17 years of age or younger.The abducted child must be in immediate danger of serious bodily harm or death.There must be enough descriptive information available to believe a broadcast will assist or aid in the recovery.

Aside from the United States, AMBER Alerts are issued in Canada and about 20 European nations.

Belgium, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom are among the countries that use the system.
