I got it too, that was weird (Verizon). Is that just the first Amber alert we've gotten in a while? I've never gotten a message like that before.

Before issuing an Amber Alert, police issued a Silver Alert. It was upgraded to the Amber Alert because of the mother's mental health, police said, without elaborating on the mental health conditions.
Interesting that they seem to treat Silver Alert as a lower priority Amber Alert. Seems confusing.

I don't think it's confusing. Silver alerts are more for when innocent lives are not threatened. If they issued an Amber alert for everything, people are less likely to take Amber alerts seriously... sounds legit to me.

Good friend of mine is a cop and he said these amber alerts are domestic a lot of times. Like the unfortunate one in NJ the other day.
