When was the last time you opened an AMBER Alert?
Earl Carlson

I got the alert and the first thing I did was go to a local news site to get more information. Having some additional context would prove more useful for sure as many other who are prone to ignore it would not do what I did.

Important to note though that the entire Amber alert system was conceived before it was possible to send all of that data. I am a lifelong Connecticut resident and can’t even remember when the last time I received an Amber alert before this one. But perhaps a simple link for more context would be more useful than what they are sending out.
