    Child Abduction warning for part of Washington and Oregon. Anyone know anything?

    There has been issued a Child Abduction Warning for part of Washington and our part of Oregon until 1:30 this afternoon. Does anyone know what this is about or what it means? I am very confused.............should I not go outside with my son?

    I've never heard of such a thing. And how do they know how long to put the warning up for? I'm a worry wart so I wouldn't go out side, but since I really have never heard of such a thing I dont' know what to tell you!

    I know me either, that's why I am asking LOL. I want to know what the heck it means! Did some crazy person escape or what, you know? I mean, I don't know what it means and I would like to know. Is there a child missing? It's all very confusing.

    I'm still going outisde. I am not going to stay cooped up inside for a what if, I would just like to know. If there is a real threat then I will stay inside.

    Just look in the phone book under their call letter, or go online - most local news stations have websites.

    The alert may have something to do with this story .

    I would guess the warning just means not to send your child outside without an adult to supervise.

    That link refers to a previous abduction and the father has been caught and the girl returned.

    Cass is talking about a new alert that appears on tv today.

    Because the guy was not caught, and is still out there somewhere??? I would call the station on which you say the warning flash. Barring that, call the local police station - not 911, just the normal number. I'm sure they will know what the warning means.

    Ok, I will do that in about 20 minutes as soon as I am finished. We were watching the Disney Channel when I first saw it and then it said to change it to channel 14 for more information.
