Endangered Missing Child Alert
The Endangered Missing Child Alert was created for missing children cases, where the missing circumstances do not meet the AMBER Alert criteria, but the child’s life is still considered at risk of serious bodily harm or death if the child is not found quickly. The following criteria must be met to initiate the Endangered Missing Child Alert:
- Law enforcement confirms the child is under 18 years of age.
- Law enforcement confirms the child is missing, such as lost, non-witnessed/non-confirmed abduction or the child’s whereabouts are unknown.
- Law enforcement believes the missing circumstances pose a credible threat of serious bodily harm or death to the child.
- There is sufficient descriptive information about the child and the circumstances surrounding the disappearance that the alert activation will help locate the child.
