It is important just not bein funded right now from the looks of it. I think parents can still get the word out if their child is missing just not as fast

I never said I felt one way or another but parents have to pound the pavement when their child is missing . A friend of mines daughter a teenager went missing for several days. There was no amber alert put out for her, no news report. He did what he had to as a parent and pounded the pavement night and day. Passing out fliers and using social media.

If there wasn't a happy ending it would have been sad yes but I think parents still have to go out searching posting missing fliers
