What the Public Should Do During an AMBER Alert
The public plays an essential role in the success of the AMBER Alert. The plan relies on the public to help locate abducted children before it's too late.
Be on the lookout for the child and suspect described in the AMBER Alert message. The alert will include a telephone number so you can report any sightings to that number as soon as possible. Call 911 if you are unsure of the number.
Tune in to your local TV and radio broadcasters for updated information about the victim or suspect. You can also find out more by calling the travel information line at 511, checking the AMBER Alert web site at www.bci.utah.gov or www.udot.utah.gov .
Register to receive the alerts on your pager, cell phone, computer or other text message device. You can sign up to receive the alerts at www.bci.utah.gov .
If you witness a child abduction, call 911 immediately to report it quickly. Be sure to make note of important information such as the physical characteristics of the child and suspect, the make and model of any vehicles involved (including license plate numbers if possible), and the precise location of the abduction.
