The Dutch AMBER Alert, that was issued on Thursday night for the missing Hania (12) from Rotterdam, can be seen on screens, masts, and ATMs, among other things, throughout the Netherlands.

Currently, the AMBER Alert is displayed at Schiphol Airport, Rotterdam The Hague Airport, Eindhoven Airport, in thousands of Shell, Avia, Tamoil, Lukoil and Total gas stations and along various motorways in the Netherlands.

Furthermore, the alert is visible in more than five hundred supermarkets. Anyone, who withdraws cash from an ATM also has a high chance of witnessing the AMBER Alert, as more than eleven hundred ATMs are now displaying the alert.

All Dutch national railway workers received the alert in an app as well. There are also several bus companies that partnered up with AMBER Alert Netherlands to spread the appeal even further. The alert message can also be found on various websites such as Buienradar and OV9292.

The police urgently ask the population to look out for the teenager, who was last spotted Thursday afternoon around 12.30 in Rotterdam-Crooswijk. The girl has medium-length dark hair. At the time of her disappearance, she was wearing a white floral patterned dress, white leggings, white shoes, a black jacket. Hania was also carrying a pink backpack.

Presumably, Hania is now in the company of an English-speaking man. The police have made photos of the suspect available to the public.

The police team leading the investigation has already spoken to many of Hania’s classmates. The police are calling on children, who have not yet told everything or perhaps have not yet spoken to the police, to contact them. The parents of the girl’s friends are also asked to inquire with their child about the possible whereabouts of Hania.
