    AMBER Alert By State

    U.S. Dept. of Justice

    About AMBER Alert

    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 kidnaped while riding her bicycle in Arlington, TX, and then brutally murdered. Other states and communities soon set up their own AMBER plans as the idea was adopted across the nation.

    Amber Alert Program

    National Center for Missing & Exploited Children Amber Alert

    The AMBER Alert Program is a voluntary partnership between law-enforcement agencies, broadcasters, transportation agencies, and the wireless industry, to activate an urgent bulletin in the most serious child-abduction cases. The goal of an AMBER Alert is to instantly galvanize the entire community to assist in the search for and the safe recovery of the child.

    AMBER Alerts are broadcast through radio, television, road signs and all available technology referred to as the AMBER Alert Secondary Distribution Program. These broadcasts let law enforcement use the eyes and ears of the public to help quickly locate an abducted child. The U.S. Department of Justice coordinates the AMBER Alert program

    KlaasKids Foundation was established in 1994 to give meaning to the death of my twelve-year-old daughter kidnap and murder victim Polly Hannah Klaas and to create a legacy in her name that would be protective of children for generations to come. The Foundation's mission is to stop crimes against children.

    The Charley Project
    The Charley Project profiles over 8,500 "cold case" missing people mainly from the United States and links to over 500 missing person related websites. It does not actively investigate cases; it is merely a publicity vehicle for missing people who are often neglected by the press and forgotten all too soon. The Charley Project is perpetually under construction and should get more features as time passes.

    The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has launched a 21st century take on milk carton advertising: a downloadable computer screensaver that flips through photographs of missing kids.
    Developed in partnership with a private software company, Global Software Applications, the rotating screens display a missing child's picture and profile, tailored according to the region of the United States where the computer user is located.
    The screensaver is available free at www.missingkidsaver.com.

    The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, NamUs, is the first national online repository for missing persons records and unidentified decedent cases. It was launched in July 2007 by the Office of Justice Program’s National Institute of Justice.

    NamUs is made up of two databases: (1) records of unidentified decedents (select "Unidentified Decedents”) and (2) missing persons reports (select “Missing Persons”).

    Currently, the unidentified decedents database is searchable and available for medical examiners and coroners to upload their cases. The search capability of the missing persons database is in development; the site currently provides resources on State clearinghouses, medical examiners and coroners, law enforcement, victim assistance resources, and legislation.

    In 2009, the two databases will be linked. Families, law enforcement agencies, medical examiners and coroners, victim advocates, and the general public will be able to search for matches between missing persons and unidentified decedent records.

    FBI's Child ID App

    You’re shopping at the mall with your children when one of them suddenly disappears. A quick search of the nearby area is unsuccessful. What do you do?

    Now there’s a free new tool from the FBI that can help. Our just launched Child ID app—the first mobile application created by the FBI—provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about your children so that it’s literally right at hand if you need it. You can show the pictures and provide physical identifiers such as height and weight to security or police officers on the spot. Using a special tab on the app, you can also quickly and easily e-mail the information to authorities with a few clicks.

    The app also includes tips on keeping children safe as well as specific guidance on what to do in those first few crucial hours after a child goes missing.

    I have vanished...

    People disappear for various reasons, many which are beyond their control. By the end of 2013, the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) contained over 84,000 active missing person cases. About 40% of these cases were related to juveniles under 18 years of age. On average, 2,300 people are reported missing every day in the United States.

    The goal of this website is to focus on both runaway juveniles and individuals who are missing against their will primarily within the United States. Reasons people go missing include being abducted, incapacitated or injured, a victim of a catastrophe, an intentional runaway or lost and unaware of their surroundings.

    This site will provide timely information regarding new missing persons cases and also close the loop on recently solved cases. It will also provide a platform for lesser known cases not necessarily receiving the media attention they deserve. Updates will be provided daily, mainly in the form of this blog and other social media. Our goal is to help locate these missing people by reaching the largest possible audience and introducing the masses to cases they may not be aware of.

    Thanks to fran!
