MySpace has announced that they will be hosting and posting Operation Amber Alerts through the MySpace website.

MySpace users who live in the zip codes where children have gone missing will find the Operation Amber Alerts in their messages area, represented by a small Amber Alert text box on which the user can click. Clicking the link will bring up the details of the event and the missing child, along with a photo of the missing child, if available.

Of course, the intentions of Operation Amber are pure. Unfortunately, the majority of Operation Amber alerts are actually about custody and visitation disputes, not about children who have truly been kidnapped at all. So, unfortunately, MySpace will probably be facilitating more abuse of the system and resources rather than actually helping truly lost children be found. It’s a shame, and it would be nice if Operation Amber would get their nose out of the family law business, and keep their focus on the children who have actually been abducted by strangers or other non-family members.
