Facebook to launch ‘Amber Alerts’ to help find missing children

Facebook takes another remarkable initiative which will help social communities all across the world in finding missing children. For this Facebook, teams up with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to send Amber Alerts to its users in specific areas where a child has gone missing.

How will this work ?

Myra Lewis, a 2-year-old from Camden, Mississippi, who went missing March 1, 2014. A picture of the child, information on where she was last seen and what she was wearing would immediately go out to Facebook users in the search area.

When people receive these alerts on their phones, they will be in a position to help. We want them to look around and see what they can do to contribute to bringing a child home, says Facebook.

Mark Zuckerberg said in a recent video post : We’re launching Amber Alerts to use the power of our community to help find missing children.

Over the past few years, we’ve seen people using Facebook on their own to help find kids who have been abducted. This inspired a team of us here to build a better tool so you can use Facebook to help reunite families.

We care deeply about this work. Facebook isn’t just about sharing the moments in your life — it’s also about helping our community be a force for good in the world.

Here’s a video from our first international Townhall Q&A in Bogota, Colombia, about launching Amber Alerts to help find missing children in more countries around the world.
