If all this wide world of information is used for is to figure out who that one guy was in that movie you saw, it feels like a waste of a good future. Which is why it warms our hearts just a bit to see things like this: now, in both Google Search or Maps, if you search for information related to a a missing or abducted child, AMBER Alerts will now be included among your search results.
Obviously, this information is no substitute for contacting local and national authorities if someone you know can't be found or if you have information on a possibly missing or abducted child. Still, the easier it is for people to access this database is, the better.
Google is also working to expand the service to other countries, announcing that the company is working with Missing Children Europe and the Canadian Centre for Child Protection for future rollouts.
