North Carolina Amber Alerts statistics.
Few dispute the overall value of Amber Alerts. This article discusses the technology and a case that could have used it back in 1966. In the article there is a quote from Cathy Nahirny, who’s been with the NCMEC for 16 years.
“…Between 1997 and 2005, 275 Amber Alerts were issued, Nahirny said. Of 338 children shown in those alerts, 335 were recovered; 322 of them were fine. Thirteen died…”
The question I would have is if you view juvenile statistics for North Carolina for the same period, you may wonder if enough Amber Alerts were issued as there were 64,465 missing juveniles over the same timeframe.
