To my friends and followers.
The Thornton, CO AMBER Alert from June 8th, 2017 has been cancelled.
With sincere sadness we report the victim has been recovered deceased. This case is currently treated by the Thornton, CO police department as a homicide.
At AMBER Apartment Alerts and Missing Children Task Force we are careful about issuing both alerts and cancellations. We are tasked to remove postings when there is a resolution.
AMBER Apartment Alerts is granted a status as a distributor of AMBER Alerts with conditions set forth in a Memorandum of Understanding from the Department of Justice.
Often an alert will be pulled from our sites waiting confirmation of that resolution. We only accept resolutions from law enforcement agencies to include state AMBER Alert Coordinators and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
We use over 17 social media outlets for distribution of alerts in addition to direct distribution to targeted locations through e-mail blast. I thank those who assist us. Since inception, we have been involved in several successful rescues due to poster redistribution.
Please share AMBER Alerts when you see them. Public awareness
Is what makes this program successful. Missing children reports have decreased from over 800,000 per year when we started to 500,000 in the most recent DOJ report. Not all reported missing children are AMBER
Alerts. Regardless, all missing children are important. Your awareness sharing missing children reports do help. The statistics are proof. Thank you for your continued support.
