Police and Facebook have launched the AMBER Alerts system, which quickly notifies the public through as many channels as possible, when a child or young person is missing and is at immediate risk of harm. People who are part of the Facebook community in the search area will receive a notification at the top of their ‘News Feed’. They can then choose to share the alert with their Facebook friends to help spread the word.
