Remember, the first 72 hours are the most critical in a search for a missing person. We've now hit the 4th day of this search. It's important to understand in the case of an abduction an amber alert could be issued. However, in the case of a runaway child an Amber Alert will not be used. In all cases, Social media has become a huge asset to safely recovering people, purely due to the ease of spreading the message. Be diligent and keep an eye out.
