The Endangered Person Advisory is an alternative to the Amber Alert

From The BYU News Net, a new program in Utah started Monday to help find missing people who may be in danger. The Endangered Person Advisory is an alternative to the Amber Alert.

The state on Monday activated a new program to help find missing people who may be in danger.

The Endangered Person Advisory is an alternative to the Amber Alert, which is a plan to quickly notify public agencies, the media and the public if a child is missing and believed to be in danger.

The Endangered Person Advisory can be used to try to find people who have disappeared, from an elderly person with Alzheimer’s disease to a 14-year-old girl with questionable correspondence on her computer, the state attorney general’s office said.

“We could have used something like this,” Jody Hawkins, the mother of Brennan Hawkins, 11, who was lost in the mountains without food or water for four days, said in a statement.

“We needed the public’s help and we needed it immediately. The Endangered Person Advisory will be a real blessing for other parents searching for their children.”

As authorities have stated, this program will be yet another useful resource in the finding of people in danger used to supplement existing alert programs.

“The Amber Alert has been an extremely effective tool for bringing abducted children home,” Attorney General Mark Shurtleff said in a statement. “With the addition of the Endangered Person Advisory, police officers have a simple, clear-cut plan for finding others who may be in danger.”

Under the current Amber Alert system, newspapers, television and radio stations are told when a child is missing and believed to be in danger. Electronic highway signs also can flash information to drivers on major roads, with details such as a child’s description or the description of a suspect’s car.

According to The Times Dispatch, search dogs got hits and could smell Taylor Behl but did not find her.

The dog could smell her, but he couldn’t find her.

The scent of Taylor Marie Behl, a missing Virginia Commonwealth University freshman, was one of two scents that were picked up by a Louisa County police dog brought in Saturday night to search her recovered car.

The other scent produced what police chief Rodney Monroe described as a “successful track,” which produced several leads that investigators were aggressively pursuing last night. Monroe would not say what the dog discovered or where its nose led investigators.

Sex Offender Corey L. Witty has to Role in missing Teen, Erin Nembhard (Picture)

Erin Nembhard, 15-year-old, was whispering into the telephone around 10:30 p.m. Friday. Less than an hour later, the teen was gone. Her family hasn’t seen her since.

Both Nembhard and authorities fear that the girl fell into a trap set by Internet predators. Police said a convicted sex offender was the last person to admit seeing her in his Opa-locka home in Miami-Dade County, more than 100 miles away from the Nembhards’ home on Aurora Drive.

Investigators said Erin Nembhard crawled out of her bedroom window with a suitcase filled with clothes and a bookbag late Friday and drove off with a man whom she had met in an Internet chat room. The man, Eduardo Narvaez, 21, first drove her to his Miami residence before taking her to the sex offender’s home early Saturday, Capt. Scott Bartal said.

The sex offender, identified as Corey L. Witty, 35, admitted to police that Nembhard spent nearly two days with him, but that she left unharmed around 2:30 p.m. Sunday, investigators said. Detectives found her belongings inside Witty’s residence. He told police he did not know where she went.

Another example of the danders parents face when their children are on-line in chat rooms.

Witty was arrested Sunday on unrelated charges of failing to register as a sex offender in Miami-Dade County. He was being held in the county jail on $5,000 bail, jail officials said.

Witty had served time for sexual battery and lewd and lascivious assault convictions dating back to 1999, according to records. The victim was younger than 16.

Anyone with information on Nembhard’s disappearance is asked to call the Port St. Lucie Police Department at (772) 871-5001 or Treasure Coast Crimestoppers at (800) 273-TIPS (8477).

New Missing Persons Alert System Training Begins

A new program called “A Child Is Missing” started Monday across Pennsylvania

It works just like this — a person goes missing, and a police officer calls ACIM. The officer gives pertinent information — such as where they were last seen and a good description. Within 15 minutes, thousands of calls go out.

The major difference between this missing persons program and The Amber Alert one is the following:

And unlike the Amber Alert system, which only is used for stranger abductions and has taken up to three hours in some cases to activate, ACIM is a rapid response system for runaways, Alzheimer’s patients, children and college students.

If you have a cell phone or an unlisted home number, you can also register those numbers with “A Child is Missing” and they contact you there. All you have to do is log on to their Web site,
