Amber alert canceled for 2-year-old | San Antonio

Amber alert canceled for 2-year-old | San Antonio: "HOUSTON -- The search for a missing Texas toddler, last seen in Eagle Pass, is over.

Police found Edu Alejandro Cruz-Rodriguez safe in Houston, just after 3 a.m.Saturday. An Amber alert was issued for the boy Friday at 7 p.m."

I wonder if Amber alerts on the whole help. I never used to get/pay attention to Amber alerts. Now I get quite a few of them directly to my phone. I'm sure they increase the odds of catching a criminal on the run. But they also increase the notoriety the perpetrator receives for committing the crime. For some criminals, I think that is a big part of their motivation.
