      Amber Alert website offline due to government shutdown

      The government shutdown claiming yet another victim.

      Instead of showing critical missing children bulletins, the federal Amber Alert web site now displays a sparse, white screen with a simple message: It's a victim of the government shutdown.

      "Due to the lapse in federal funding, this Office of Justice Programs (OJP) web site is unavailable," the message reads, just below a U.S. Department of Justice seal.

      The web site normally displays urgent alerts from across the nation about the most at-risk missing children, helping to connect citizens and law enforcement across all participating jurisdictions.
