When a child goes missing, every second counts.
Facebook started showing Amber Alerts two years ago in collaboration with the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children - ICMEC. It's already working – last November, an 8-year-old girl in Malaysia was found safe after someone saw an alert in their News Feed and called the police.
On International Missing Children’s Day, Facebook announced that they’ve expanded the program to 12 countries. The more people that see these alerts, the better the chances of bringing missing children home. Facebook and ICMEC are working to bring AMBER Alerts to more places so we can all help keep children safe.
