Info on Secura Child-Make Your Own Amber Alerts!!!

Every 40 seconds in the United States, someone’s son or daughter goes missing, but only a fraction of those children are eligible to have a traditional Amber Alert issued for them because the circumstances for their disappearance do not lead officials to believe they are in life-threatening danger among other criteria. A new technology has been developed, however, that allows parents to send out their own alert anytime their child goes missing.

The technology is called SecuraChild. It is an internet service that is free to use where parents can create an account, save profiles on each of their children that they can print out for police with details that can be hard to recall under stress like height, weight, etc. And, parents can also log in and submit a missing child notice that is broadcast over Facebook, Twitter and the SecuraChild network (members of the network receive a text and email missing child alert message) notifying hundreds of potential searchers that the child is missing in mere seconds.

As a mom I think this is a revolutionary service.  Many times the message gets out too late. Every moment a child is missing is a moment too long. 

There is a simple, 3-step process:
1. Register online in just a matter of minutes
2. Enter identifying information about your child and login anytime you want to securely update or change this information
3. In the event of a missing child, report your child missing at to trigger a Community Response Alert (CoRA™) in seconds. 

Provide yourself with peace-of-mind and your child with an instant search party should he or she ever go missing.  Sign-up today at
