On March 18, The Dutch police issued an AMBER Alert for a 9 year old boy from Utrecht, the Netherlands. Thankfully the boy has been found safe and well. Thank you all for being on the lookout!
In the Netherlands, the AMBER Alert system is used by the police to instantly alert 12 million people when a child goes missing and is feared to be in immediate danger. The system uses any available media – including TV, radio, highway signs, text messages, email, website banners, advertising screens, PC screensavers, smartphone apps and social media – and is used about 200 times a year for both AMBER Alerts and other endangered missing children cases.
