  • 2. Law enforcement officials believe there is a credible threat of serious bodily injury or death to the victim.
  • 3. Enough descriptive information exists about the victim and the abductor for law enforcement to issue an AMBER Alert.
  • 4. The victim of the abduction is a child age 17 years or younger.
  • 5. The child's name and other critical data elements - including the child abduction (CA) flag - have been entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) system.
