I disagree with the concept of criminalizing missing person cases.

I agree with Sharon. In instances where a ‘family member’ files a police report that an ‘adult’ is missing and subsequently found to be safe, I suggest both parties be fined a minimum of $500 for their actions, when it is shown the incident was due to an inconsiderate act on the part of either party.

Thank you, Charles, for understanding what I was trying to convey. I certainly take ALL missing persons seriously as you do! I in no way was suggesting criminalization of 'legitimate' missing persons or suggesting we 'ignore' these alerts when they appear in the news. But, for those who abuse Amber Alerts (who take off @ whim knowing there will be concerned family & friends), consequences should be forthcoming. Maybe then e.g. 13 & 14 year old won't get on a bus & travel distances from home (cases we have read on PATCH)...something I don't understand anyway when parents should be placing restrictions/BOUNDARIES on these 'just' kids!

There ARE indeed many tragic, very tragic cases, JN! No one is disputing that sad fact. And these are certainly not the types of 'missing persons' cases Charles and I are referring to, for sure!
