What You Should Do

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. 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.

If you hear an AMBER Alert, watch for the child, suspect and vehicle described in the alert. Immediately report any sightings by calling the telephone number included with the alert. (Do NOT call 911 to request information about the abduction.)

Do NOT contact local law enforcement or Alaska State Troopers unless you have accurate, vital information to report. Phone lines will be jammed during an AMBER Alert and officials will be extremely busy. Return to this website for official information and updates.

Tune to your local TV or radio station or access this website for updates. Do NOT call local law enforcement or Alaska State Troopers.

Contact your neighbors or friends and let them know that an Alaska AMBER Alert is in progress and tell them where to go for more information.

Take this opportunity to be sure that your child’s identification packet is up-to-date. Talk to your child about how to stay safe.
