A three-year-old girl who was the subject of a nationwide CRI Alert that had been issued on April 25 2015, has been found safe and well. The girl went missing together with her mother (40) from Dublin, Ireland.
The Child Rescue Ireland alert system was launched in May 2012. It is used when there is a suspicion a child has been taken without consent and where a risk to the child’s safety or welfare is also feared. It involves gardaí supplying information such as the name and description of missing children and the adults they are with, along with details of where they might be or the kind of vehicle in which they are travelling.The alert is issued through the media but gardaí also use other means to spread the notices, such as electronic road signs that usually warn motorists about driving conditions (Irish Times).
