Arkansas Changes its Amber Alert System


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Changes have been made to the Arkansas Amber Alert system.

For years, when a child was missing in Arkansas law enforcement agencies would put out a Morgan Nick Amber Alert.

The alert was named after an Arkansas girl who went missing from an Alma baseball field almost two decades ago.

But from now on it will just be called an Amber Alert — a change Morgan Nicks’ mom Coleen made a big push for because she says it creates confusion.

This change goes into effect immediately.
