Attorney general, state officials plan to check AMBER Alert system on Saturday

Attorney General Mark Shurtleff and other state officials plan to test Utah's AMBER alert system on Saturday.

Jan. 13 - National AMBER Alert Day - will become an annual test date along with Aug. 25, the anniversary of the 1982 abduction of Rachael Runyan near Sunset.

The state's system relies heavily on the news media to post warning on Web sites and broadcasts. Members of the public may also receive AMBER alerts on cell phones, regardless of service providers. Carbon County residents may visit http://www.wirelessamberalerts.org/ for information.
