Have you seen this child , if so please contact your local police dispatch !! We hve all this this on t.v , heard this on the radio , seen posters and flyers stuck to bulletin boards and on telephone poles , seen emails going around and have seen Amber alerts otu there , in which indiviudals are looking for your help in finding a lost loved one .... So how much attention to you pay this when you come across a situation where someone is asking for your help ? Do you turn up your television on the off chance you have seen this person , turn up your radio , do you actually stop to look at the bullentins on your way to the grocery store , do you even open your email when you see this heading ? What if you thought you recognized someone , would you clal and report this or would you be more hesitant on the off chance you were wrong ? What if this were your loved one and you were asking for help !! Are we so buy with our daily lives that we don't stop and pay as close attention to this as we could ? As a society is there not more we could do to help find loved ones ?

Hi sam... When this comes across my TV I do listen..and I do look at the bulletin boards when I go to the stores...and the other places they are posted.. If I ever thought I saw someone..I would call...because you never know..Even if it isn't the child, it was worth the call.. My heart would be hurting so bad if this was my child...and I feel helpless for those that are going through this...

I do look at teh emails when I get them but i don't know if i would call the police unless i was really sure it was the right person . I dont' really look at the pictures casue we don't see them in our area but if it is on tv or the radio i do listen to what it has to safe . I am lucky cause we don't have to worry about stuff like that around here casue things like that don't happen .

I do look at the posters and the fliers that people hand out and I do watch it on tv and in the news . I wish there was more we could do cause it is so sad when you see some of these pictures and no that the are missing and how there families must be feeling . I don't know anyone this happened to but i know it must be really hard on people . I would call if i thought i saw someone just in case . if I was wrong then I would be wrong won't hurt to see though .

I will be honsest I don't go looking for posters but if I see this on tv i will watch just in case I have seen the person that is missing and will mention it to friends to see if they saw what was on t.v or the raido and we will talk about how sad it is and that it would be great if they find the person and they get to go back home safe . It is always nice when the person is found scared but safe .
