Jane Long Middle School Parent Reacts to False Amber Alert

By  | 

BRYAN You can imagine how a false amber alert might have upset some Bryan parents of Jane Long Middle School students, when the alert said a child had been abducted from that school.

Wednesday afternoon we talked to a parent who was picking up her daughter.

Ginger Pierce was already at work when her husband e-mailed her that the amber alert related to Jane Long Middle was a false alarm.

She says, "I'd rather be alerted than not alerted, even if it was a false alarm. And they were pretty quick from what I hear, in taking care of the situation."

Local emergency officials stress that they want people to continue to trust the Amber Alert System, despite the mistake made on Wednesday.
