No Alerte Enlévèment issued
The French authorities did not issue an Alerte Enlévèment, the French AMBER Alert system. According to France Bleu, the judicial authorities did not have the time to launch an abduction alert. TF1 reported that the abduction alert had not been triggered because launching an alert takes too much time.
