I thought only employees were to look for the child? If i were shopping and heard code adam i would not drop everything and look for someone's child. Especially since i usually have my own with me.

I work in a hospital and I think all places should follow the same things we do. We have people and yes sometimes its even people who are not employees and we all block the exits so if its more than just a child got lost and someone is actually trying to kidnap that child we can prevent something even worse from happening. If it was my child that was lost cause lord knows even the best moms have accidents, I would hope someone would help me look for my child and be considerate of the fact that there is 1) a mom freaking out and 2) a child somewhere that is probably scared to death and wants their mommy!

 Adam alert is a missing child alert system used in stores, namely Wal Mart and other large retailers, due to the child Adam Walsch who was stolen from Sears and murdered. If I remember right, the kidnapper beheaded the little boy. His dad hosted America's Most Wanted.

Generally during an Adam Alert, the only people who are supposed to look are employees for the store. I'm sure concerned citizens can look, but the announcement is so that employees of the store can follow protocol. Whoever is assigned to block exits needs to go do so, whoever is assigned to canvas certain areas starts to do that. I know that if I was in a store and heard an alert, I'd keep an eye out, and would alert an employee if I saw the child, but I don't think I'd stop what I was doing, especially if I had my own children with me. The store employees are told how to handle the situation, and law enforcement is called.

Ugh! I would have been looking for the child. I wish people was more in the spirit to helping others than themselves.

I continue shopping, but will keep an eye out.
