Minnesota has issued 46 Amber Alerts since 2002. All but one child was saved.

The emergency notices vibrate our phones, light up billboards, interrupt televisions, radio and everyday lives for good reason.

Amber Alert finds missing children with efficiency, spreading life-saving information statewide in an instant and leading to swift recoveries. Since Minnesota launched the system in 2002, all but one of the 46 children subject of the alerts here were safely recovered - most within the same day.

But the mother who championed Minnesota's Amber Alert waited 27 years to find her son. In the midst of searching, Patty Wetterling made sure other parents didn't have to wait.
