Google Public Alerts platform added today AMBER Alerts -- coordinated by National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) -- AMBER Alerts will "provide information about the abducted child and any other details about the case as they become available."

"If you're using Google Search or Maps on desktop and mobile you'll see an AMBER Alert if you search for related information in a particular location where a child has recently been abducted and an alert was issued," informs Google.

"You'll also see an alert if you conduct a targeted search for the situation. By increasing the availability of these alerts through our services, we hope that more people will assist in the search for children featured in AMBER Alerts and that the rates of safe recovery will rise," Google added.

Additional details could include the make and model of the vehicle he/she was abducted in or information about the alleged abductor.
