A Story of a 9 year-old Amber Hakmerman who was riding on her bicycle, it was a shock when a man took her off and thrown her into the front seat of his pick up truck in front of neighbors. A few days later Amber’s body was found in a drainage ditch four miles away. Her throat had been cut. Her kidnapping and murder remain unsolved.
This happened in 1996 and it is the origin of Amber Alert , a child abduction alert bulletin in the United States and Canada issued upon the suspected abduction of a child. It is distributed via commercial radio stations, satellite radio, television stations, and cable TV by the Emergency Alert System as well as via e-mail and electronic traffic-condition signs.
