State to Review Amber Alert System

KSAL StaffDecember 7, 2016

Kansas has announced plans to review its Amber Alert system after a faulty alert this week.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said in a release Wednesday that he’s ordered a review of the state’s Amber Alert operations after a Wichita Amber Alert on Tuesday failed to activate on cellphones.

The alert was issued after a woman and three children were reported abducted from their home. An Amber Alert was issued, but Schmidt says a method of broadcasting the Amber Alert by a signal that activates individuals’ cellphones failed to activate. The woman and children were later found safe.

Schmidt says KBI Director Kirk Thompson will review of the program and issue a report by January 31.
