And the one who had him stolen in the middle of the night is probably the one who chose the name. Not the kid's fault.

Exactly. People lost a little sleep. Meanwhile a kid is missing. I think you guys are going to be just fine.

Who decides when these get released? No way it’s automated, who makes the call to press the button?

no land line, our cell phones are shut off when we go to bed. i'm not going to be any good to anyone at 2, 3 or 4am anyways, so if anything big does happen overnite, i'll deal with it in the morning.

Mixed feelings. It definitely was inconvienent for most people (I ignored it and went back to sleep until my alarm went off at 5) and I am really curious why it took over 5 hours to issue the alert. On the other hand, as the victim of a custody kidnapping when I was the same age I'm glad these exist. Even with no physical violence involved, there were lasting effects on my mother, grandparents, and me

Yeah I was pissed. The dog and cat already woke me up a few times. I wasn't even going to check my phone but I thought it might be something serious like a incoming missile or tsunami for them to send out an alert so early.

Some people don’t get enough sleep as is


Waking everyone up doesn’t help get the kid back from one parent to another.


This horse shit of using amber alerts when one parent “abducts “ their own child has to stop also. Should be reserved for actual abductions.
Words have meaning. Like calling everyone a “hero”. Destroys the word.

Agreed 100%. A little inconvenient for some and harrowing for a child.

Yeah, my phone turns itself off at midnight and back on at 5:30. I don't mind the alert but it didn't say anything that would help out unless you knew the family.

Not everyone on the planet was sleeping when the alert went off. I was driving home from work on 695, and there were a heck of a lot of other people on the road who appeared to be headed to work. Any one of them could have seen something and reported it, but only if they knew about it.

Not even close to truth.

A non custodial parental abduction is an abduction, period. They don't all run off to live anonymous lives in Mexico or out west.. many result in death. Out of jealousy, control ('If I can't have him, neither can you'), mental crisis, whatever. I can count half a dozen cases from memory where a woman drove herself and her kids into a lake, river, off a cliff; or how about a guy stopping in the middle of a bridge to throw their toddler over the side?

Non-custodial parents sometimes lose custody for very good reasons.
