Bill Includes People with Disabilities

Last fall, when Debi McMurray saw that a young autistic boy was lost in Central Kentucky, she was heartbroken. "I was watching Channel 3, and Dawn Gee said that an Amber Alert couldn't be issued for this child because he wasn't abducted. I thought it covered everything," she said. "I just couldn't believe that the most vulnerable people [those with developmental disabilities] were not covered." That situation caused family friend state Rep. Brad Montell to sponsor the Chase Alert Bill.
