90% of these are family members taking their own children. This one is 300 miles away. Wouldn't it be best to stick with only those that are local? What excactly are people supposed to be looking for? By making this a needle in a haystack, it's going to dilute the ones that will really matter when and if it ever comes up, locally.

This needs to be posted here. A baby is missing! It doesn't say taken by family. It implies a stranger abduction that seems to have occured in the process of the car being stolen.

I hope the child is safe and sound soon.

This is horrific and needs to be posted to anyone who might be able to catch a sight of the vehicle (like as it goes down the 101 here.)

This is not your usual child abduction by relative from what I read into the info.

I'm glad it's posted. I'll be looking for the Jeep. The more eyes the better. Hoping for a speedy return home for the little girl.

291, I'm tempted to post to explain to you what an Amber alert is, but... Maybe you'll find out yourself. And gain some compassion. I will make no more judgmental comments about your post. or maybe you're a rile people up poster. who knows.

Oh heck, I've never not mouthed off or lectured before:
From US Dept. of Justice:
The AMBER Alertâ„¢ Program is a voluntary partnership between law-enforcement agencies, broadcasters, transportation agencies, and the wireless industry, to activate an urgent bulletin in the most serious child-abduction cases. The goal of an AMBER Alert is to instantly galvanize the entire community to assist in the search for and the safe recovery of the child.

349, your deleted post is not visible yet, but I imagine it had to do with style and tone rather than basic content and intent. I do read posting guidelines about 3 times a year. Hope you find this site worth it anyway.

I read 349's deleted post before it was deleted and I agree, it was not offensive or anything. Really a shame what gets deleted here sometimes - including this post for daring to criticize the Nanny.
