Monica Sanchez created a petition on-line, to the UK Prime Minister, to set up an alert system for when children go missing. Why? “There is no actual warning system in this country for when children do go missing. This has to stop as there are too many children that go missing by setting up an amber alert system which should not only cover the UK but also Europe,” she wrote. With a little research, she could find that there is a UK national alert system, since 2006 and the European Union has been working to set up a similar system with the 27 Member States, since 2006.
