New York State Senate: Create Avonte's alert, named for Avonte Oquendo.

This is very important because these children or adults do not have a way to seek help the way other people who are missing maybe able to. The quick notification of a missing person will result in a quick return to home. At the time of Avonte's missing status if an Alert was sent out to everyone phones, radio station, etc an awareness would have taken place to be on the look out for this child. Lets not let this happen again for any child or person with the inabliity to communicate.
