I think IA should have an earlier alert system. By the time 24 hours is up your kid(s) could be long gone. Parents know better than anyone what is "out of the norm " for their kid(s). Law enforcement needs to start listening to them since they know their family better than they do.

I don't know why it would be difficult to put in place a law suporting the child's right to be put on amber alert right away even if no one saw the child be abducted especially when the child was outdoors playing and disappeared. In a world where sex offenders roam the street and are allowed to roam the street this would be elementary. You can't tell me somebody's always watching to make sure they're not within so many feet of a school or playground. They would have to be watched 24/7 and heck kids can be snatched off the sidewalk as far as that goes.
