Protect Missing Children started this petition to Government

Rory Pope, a 2 year old, and his two siblings and parents were visiting their grandparents house in Eagle, Idaho.  After a fun day of fishing with the family, they were getting ready to pack up their stuff and go home but Rory didn't want to leave.  His parents were right behind him when he had a tantrum and vanished.    

Rory was last seen September 2 at 12:15pm.  The authorities were called and for the last 48 hours have been searching for Rory.

The AMBER Alert protocols state that there must be an abductor in question with a positive identification of a vehicle.  In Rory's case there was no foul play, no abductor or a vehicle in question.  Therefore he does not qualify for an AMBER Alert.  Whether or not there was an abduction, all children who go missing should be placed on this alert.  Not only would this broaden the search area, it would let the family know that more people will be involved in the search.

I am asking for your help to change the AMBER Alert laws so all missing children will have a fighting chance to be found and returned to their family safely.
