People in this area is so stupid, don't know the difference from Edmonton KY USA from Edmonton Canada.
Its no wonder though that the crappy school system we have here. No wonder most everyone in this place is on public assistance.

Not only is it NOT Edmonton, KY, it's not true, it's a hoax. I wish everyone who reads or receives such messages would check them out for fact before passing them along. Just plug into snopes.com .

Your right, people like me should check these things out before passing them on but dont be too hard on us. I mean when you are asked to pass it on the last thing you think about is checking it out. Just be thankful I as well as others care enough about your children to pass those messages on.

I totally agree with just a dad!
Why would anyone think twice about passing it on!
Its not about being stupid! The people that posted this in the 1st place are the stupid ones as well as sick in the head! Why spread that, obviously don't have children of their own and if they do, they shouldn't be allowed!

The reason you check them out first and you DON'T send them is because we get so used to receiving hoaxes about missing children that if a REAL one came along (but truthfully, how many people who've really had a child go missing send out an email asking you to help find them??? Emails and Topix is NOT where you go to find mission kids)we'd dismiss it as probably not real.

You're not doing ME or any other parent any favors by passing along hoaxes.

I didnt even think about checking this out when someone had sent this to me. Why would I think about checking something like this out if it was true or not, all i could think about was my own three year old daughter who thankfully is tucked safe and soundly in bed at the moment fast asleep. Right after i posted it, I went down my friends list and told everyone of my friends that were online to read my post, and paste it! Why in the world would i think that there are sick people out there would post false amber alerts on facebook! That certainly was not the first thing that came to my mind! So, for all those parents out there like myself who DID pass this on, good for you! At least it shows that we care enough to do so!

Well said loving mother. As for the comment Hoax said about how many people who have a child missing would email it out to everyone, well I can tell you that if my child was missing I would get the word out any way I could.

There's definitely merit in passing along information that might help in an actual emergency, but we have to be responsible internet users. Perpetuating a hoax, even unknowingly, makes you an unwitting accomplice to that sick act. And, like Hoax pointed out, everyone is going to develop the "boy who cried wolf" syndrome.
We get sent these things so often - and, make no mistake, at first we get the same clenching, sick feeling in the pits of our stomach that you do - then we check them out only to learn they're not real. Eventually, we'll get desensitized and if some real emergency hits our inboxes, we'll be more likely to consider some little girl out there, terrified and in danger, a nameless, faceless hoax to be disregarded. And her parents very real efforts to find her via every method possible will be in vain.
It takes fifteen seconds to check Snopes. Be responsible with your time and with ours. If you are concerned that fifteen seconds will make a difference, then, by all means, forward to your hearts content. Then check your facts, and check back in to confirm or send a disregard to the people you've forwarded to.

Why not post it, how bad will it hurt changing your wall post for a few hours. Not a big deal. The big deal is when people dont post it or care and it is real.
