MySpace issuing Amber alerts

MySpace is now distributing Amber alerts to members notifying them of missing children in their zip codes.

MySpace (News Corp) + National Center for Missing & Exploited Children

The online alerts appear in a small text box at the top of a user's portfolio. The user can click on the box for more information, including a picture of the missing child and a description of the suspect.

Amber alerts
- issued by by law-enforcement officials
- named for Amber Hagerman, a 9-year-old girl killed in Texas in 1996

I realize it's crass of me to feature this DVD, but I can't help myself!
