Amber Alerts: are they enough?

Amber Alerts send out urgent bulletins to police and news media in child-abduction cases. The alerts have been successful in returning hundreds of children to their families.

A list of state contacts for Amber Alerts is available.

The question of the day is, are Amber Alerts enough? Are they spreading the word in enough places and ways? Could there be a more effective way to find missing children? An additional way? Vote in the survey, and leave a comment about what else we should be doing if you don't think we're doing enough.
