Parents Voice Concerns About Amber Alert
An Amber Alert was issued yesterday for a five year old boy abducted in Anniston. Thankfully, he's been found safe. But many parents tell CBS 8 News they didn't know an alert had gone out, and tonight, they're voicing their worries about what would happen if their own children were in danger.
Parents CBS 8 spoke with at Ida Bell Young Park say they have concerns about Alabama's Amber Alert. They say the system means well, but it just isn't working.
Parents say thanks to CBS 8 News, they heard the Amber Alert loud and clear.
Cunningham says another way law enforcement issues Amber Alerts is through digital billboards that you see over the interstates. Parents say they'd like to see more added across the state, so more people can see the alerts issued.
