Now, when a users searches for related information in an area where a child abduction has recently occurred they will see an AMBER alert in their search results, along with details about the abduction.
The new feature is the result of a partnership with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and Google states in their announcement that they are working to bring this feature to additional countries in the future.
You may recall that Facebook added a similar AMBER alert feature a little while back. Its good to see these web giants doing their part to get the word out about child abductions by informing their massive user bases.
