  1. Troublesome that I had to type in “New York Active Amber Alert” to find any mention of this case on the internet. They were kidnapped about 7 pm But no amber alert for 6 hours and then only in New York not any surrounding states. I do not think most people anticipate this is how Amber Alerts are supposed to work.
