You know, it is not very smart to start stuff like this on a public forum. The Amber Alert is a very serious alert and should be taken seriously. When it comes to the lives of children, people will jump when stuff like this comes out, and you can cause a lot of crap because you wanted to play a little game. NOT VERY SMART! And, if I'm not mistaken, I believe it is against to law to do what you did.

yup....my cell phone is buzzing right off the desk with this one....So far I have recieved 7 texts about this, and it's buzzing with number 8.

While it is good to show a fast community response, it is wise to find out the truth before passing along.

Didn't that same message go out earlier this year? I remember getting a text just like that a while back.

I went to the Amber Alert site before passing it on when I received it. I couldn't find anything on it so I didn't pass it on. I also sent a txt back to the person who sent it to me leting them know it was false. I would like to say most people passing it on are doing so thinking they are helping.

I also recieved this text, and like most people I passed it on to everyone I know. The reason being I wanted to get it out as quick as possible, maybe I should have checked to see if it was a hoax and didnt. But I as well cant believe all the responses it has gotton. Even though it was a hoax. I believe it is awesome that there are still people out there that care about each other. Who ever started this aweful hoax SHAME ON YOU!!! Childrens lives are nothing to play with!!!!
