Senate OKs bill to expand child alert system to tribal land

FLAGSTAFF (AP) — The U.S. Senate has approved a bill that expands a child abduction alert system to tribal land.

The bill is named for Ashlynne Mike, an 11-year-old girl who was lured into a van on the Navajo Nation in May 2016, sexually assaulted and killed. An Amber Alert wasn't issued until the day after she was reported missing. Her body was found near Shiprock, New Mexico.
