Amber, which stands for America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response, was created as a legacy to 9-year-old Amber Hagerman, who was murdered in January 1996 after being kidnapped while riding her bicycle in Arlington, Texas.

As of December last year, there were 86 Amber plans throughout the country. According to the system's website, 1,029 children have been rescued specifically because of the Amber Alert system as of December 2020.
