Guide for Implementing or Enhancing an Endangered Missing Advisory
(NCJ 232001) March 2011
Report, 44 page(s)
Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
Describes how a community can establish a task force to create an endangered missing advisory (EMA) plan, which creates voluntary partnerships to rapidly recover missing persons who do not fit the AMBER Alert criteria but who may be in danger. EMAs help law enforcement notify the general public that someone is missing and ultimately save lives. The guide provides directions for developing, activating, and sustaining an EMA plan and includes sample plans and press releases.
