A stamp from the Postal Service honoring the Amber Alert system is available nationwide today.
The alert system is used to find missing children by notifying surrounding communities within the first few hours of the crime.
It was created in 1996 after the kidnapping and killing of nine-year-old Amber Hagerman in Arlington, Texas.
The Postal Service will unveil the stamp at a ceremony in Washington today, which is National Missing Children's Day. A second ceremony will be held in Arlington.
The stamp depicts a mother and child embracing.
