The AMBER Alert plan has been expanded in Utah to include electronic roadway signs (See maps of UDOT electronic signs and AMBER Alert business sign locations), pagers and other methods to alert the public. It has proven to be an effective way to quickly inform the public about serious child abduction cases. Utah’s AMBER Alert Plan is tested each year on January 13 and August 26 to make sure the alerts are immediate and effective. Our goal is to instantly galvanize the entire community to assist in the search for and safe return of abducted children.

The AMBER Alert is part of the nationwide AMBER Plan, a voluntary partnership between law-enforcement agencies and broadcasters. The plan utilizes the Emergency Alert System and other means to notify the public about a missing child and a suspected abductor. The child abduction alert was originally called the Rachael Alert in Utah.
