The top story describes how the Northeast Ohio AMBER Alert Committee developed an AMBER Alert Family Response Plan to seek information, feedback, and advice from a victim’s family after a child has been safely recovered. The plan is designed to help improve the AMBER Alert program and offer insights for law enforcement and victim services to more effectively work with families of an abducted child.

The issue also provides updates on AMBER Alert in Indian country, including the launch of the redesigned AMBER Alert in Indian country website. The site offers a comprehensive array of resources, training and technical assistance information, and the latest news about the efforts and outcomes of AMBER Alert in Indian country initiatives.

In addition, “Faces of the AMBER Alert Network” articles feature interviews with AMBER Alert coordinators in New York and Kansas. They share the challenges, successes, and lessons learned from their experiences in recovering missing and abducted children.

The AMBER Advocate is produced through a cooperative agreement with OJJDP.
