On Monday, 26 February 2018, an AMBER Alert was issued for a 6-month-old girl from Eersel, the Netherlands. The girl has been found in good health.
A Dutch AMBER Alert is an emergency message, issued by the Dutch police when a child is abducted or missing when the police fears the child’s life or health is in danger. The system enables the police to immediately alert all and ask them to be on the lookout for the child in question. When an AMBER Alert is issued, the picture of the AMBER Alert child is instantly visible everywhere: on TVs, highway signs, billboards, signs in buses, and on thousands of websites. Also, over 2,5 million AMBER Alert messages are sent out via SMS, e-mail, Twitter, Facebook and Apps, highly increasing the chances of a positive outcome. AMBER Alert Netherlands, responsible for issuing the alerts, is an official member of AMBER Alert Europe. To check for all members of AMBER Alert Europe, please see: Participating organisations.
