I’m assuming I got it because I signed up for news alerts from a local TV station. But it was odd.
First up at the top of the phone was a little red triangle icon which I hadn’t seen before. The message itself was cryptic. It said “Amber Alert. Green Bay Kia …” followed by what I presume was a license plate number. No mention of what of anyone’s names, or what anyone was being sought for.
A few minutes later there I got an news alert from the TV station itself, fleshing out some more detail, including a picture and the name of a missing child, and the name of the adult who is suspected of taking him. Their last names didn’t match, so it might or might not be an outright kidnapping, or some kind of parental/custodial dispute carried too far. That was another detail not released.
