Governor Ricketts plus state and local law enforcement announced Tuesday a new “Endangered Missing Advisory” plan designed to quickly find missing people who are at risk.

EMA’s will enhance law enforcement’s ability to quickly find endangered missing people through regional alerts sent to  local broadcasters, without “over-alerting” the public through statewide EAS alerts.

Governor Ricketts says the public is encouraged to sign  up at the Nebraska State Patrol website to personally receive the alerts that are being forwarded to the media if they don’t have access to a broadcast  outlet.

The alerts will  not be provided statewide like an Amber Alert so the public can understand the difference between the two and avoid over-alerting the public.
