History Of Amber Alerts In South Dakota

History Of Amber Alerts In South Dakota

The Amber Alert issued Thursday morning for two kids taken from their Rapid City home was the fifth time the state has used the system.

"Amber Alert has again proven to be an effective way for law enforcement, the media, and the public to help protect children that have been placed in a dangerous situation," South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley said.
The first Amber Alert in South Dakota was in 2004 for a toddler taken from Butte County.  He was found safe in Pierre.

One in 2006 in Watertown was canceled when all kids at the school were accounted for.  

In 2011, a suspect in an Iowa Amber Alert was located in Kadoka.

In June 2013, a Nebraska girl was found in South Dakota
