ABSTRACT
The article reports that wireless service carriers in the U.S. and their subscribers may soon join the fight to recover missing or abducted children. Telecommunications data provider Intrado Inc. teamed with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and the U.S. Department of Justice this month to launch a secondary system of distribution of AMBER (America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response) alerts to targeted geographic areas. Intrado has worked with the NCMEC for about two and a half years, providing wireline emergency AMBER alerts, said Mark Scott, Intrado vice president of wireline sales.
