    My thinking on this is have 3 members from each state 1 from center 1 more
    on each end of that state.all that would be needed to be done is each
    member of 3 members from that state,to contact his local law enforcement
    head quaters,and tell who he is what he is trying to do thru the BOC,leave them his contact information so that they can respond to him ASAP,the
    member could go to his state talk area and post details,discription,and pic
    if available under AMBER ALERT for his state.

    1.post case pending.
    2.case canceled---meaning found.
    3.case solved-----meaning results not good.
    4.case was false alarm--- thats a good thing.

    i belive this all that it would take to get it started.
    CAN WE GET ALL STATES ONBOARD???? :D

    I was sitting here wondering if one of the member's know's the story of how it became the "Amber Alert"
    I know there was a girl named Amber, and I can't remember if they found her alive or not,,,
    I would like to see somebody explain what it is all about, Maybe we will get more of a response from the member's..Thanks..

    I found this while surfing the web......
    Where and why did AMBER Alert first start?
    The AMBER Alert System began in 1996 when Dallas-Fort Worth broadcasters teamed 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 set up their own AMBER plans as the idea was adopted across the nation.

    How does it work?
    Once law enforcement has determined that a child has been abducted and the abduction meets AMBER Alert criteria, law enforcement notifies broadcasters and state transportation officials. AMBER Alerts interrupt regular programming and are broadcast on radio and television and on highway signs. AMBER Alerts can also be issued on lottery tickets, to wireless devices such as mobile phones, and over the Internet. Through the coordination of local, state and regional plans, the Department of Justice (DOJ) is working towards the creation of a seamless national network.

    How effective has it been?
    AMBER Alert has been very effective. AMBER Alert programs have helped save the lives of over 200 children nationwide.

    Over 84 percent of those recoveries have occurred since October 2002 when President Bush called for the appointment of an AMBER Alert Coordinator at the first-ever White House Conference on Missing, Exploited and Runaway Children

    AMBER Alerts serve as deterrents to those who would prey upon our children. AMBER Alert cases have shown that some perpetrators release the abducted child after hearing the AMBER Alert on the radio or seeing it on television.
