Kansas officials looking at improving Amber Alert system

WICHITA, Kansas – It was a week ago that Hailey Owens was kidnapped and killed.

Now, Kansas officials are using what they learned that night to try to improve the Amber Alert system.

Last week’s alert went out over cell phones, televisions and the radio, but there were some technical glitches.

Now, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation has invited KSN engineers to be part of a group to work on some solutions.

The first meeting will be in early March.
