On Wednesday, Waze announce that it would be rolling out AMBER alerts on its service in the near future. The alerts will display on the map when a user is within the area of the incident, but only after a vehicle has been stopped for 10 seconds. The user can then see information like a photo of the child, last seen vehicle, license plate, and more.
Since 1996, AMBER alerts have helped safely recover 728 missing/abducted children. Waze's move follows Facebook's addition of AMBER alerts in January 2015.
