BISMARCK — The North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) and the North Dakota Department of Emergency Services (NDDES) will conduct the annual test of the AMBER (America’s Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response) Alert system from 2 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 23.

All AMBER Alert components will be tested except for the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA), which is sent to mobile devices. Advanced notification is provided to avoid misinterpretation of this test as an actual AMBER Alert.

The goal of an AMBER Alert is to prompt the community to assist in the search for and safe return of an abducted child. For more information, visit at https://ndresponse.gov/alert .
