About Amber Alerts
Amber Alert empowers law enforcement, the media, and the public to combat abduction by sending out immediate, up-to-date information that aids in the child’s safe recovery. Using radio, television, the internet, highway information signs, and even cell phone networks, Amber Alert gives the public the information needed to help locate abducted children.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is responsible for statewide coordination of Amber Alerts and the other emergency response activities associated with a child abduction.
Active Amber Alerts are listed on the CHP website.
