Amber Alert (America’s Missing: Broadcasting Emergency Response) is a child abduction notification, used in the United States, Australia, France, and UK, among other countries, to alert people when a child has been kidnapped. Amber Alert was created in 1996 following the death of Amber Hagerman, a nine year old girl who was kidnapped and murdered in her hometown of Arlington, Texas. Her father, Richard Hagerman, co-created Amber Alert with Bruce Seybert in an effort to save other children from his daughter’s fate. Amber Alerts notify individuals via, television, radio, road signs, and through services like iAlert.com of the abduction of a child, usually providing the make, model, and license plate number of the vehicle in which they were abducted. There is a network of over one hundred Amber Alerts in the country, and Amber Alert is credited with saving the lives of over five hundred children.
