    II. The parents, custodial parent, guardian, legal custodian, or other person responsible for the missing child shall provide available information upon request, and may provide information voluntarily, to the law enforcement agency during the information gathering process. The law enforcement agency also may obtain available information about the missing child from other persons, subject to constitutional and statutory limitations.
    III. Upon the filing of a missing child report, the law enforcement agency involved promptly shall make a reasonable attempt to notify other law enforcement agencies within its county and, if the agency has jurisdiction in a city, town, or unorganized or unincorporated place that borders another county, to notify the law enforcement agency for the city, town, or unorganized or unincorporated place in the other county with which it shares the border, that it has taken a missing child report and may be requesting assistance or cooperation in the case, and provide relevant information to the other law enforcement agencies.

Upon such notification or upon otherwise learning that a missing child has returned to the home of, or to the care, custody, and control of his parents, custodial parent, guardian, or legal custodian, or other person responsible for him, or has been released if he was the victim of an offense under RSA 633, or otherwise has been located, the law enforcement agency involved shall promptly integrate the fact that the minor is no longer a missing child into the national crime information center computer.
    Source. 1985, 318:3, eff. July 1, 1985.

    169-E:7 Cooperation With United States Attorney General. – Law enforcement agencies in this state shall cooperate fully with the United States Attorney General in the collection of information that would assist in the identification of unidentified deceased persons and information that would assist in the location of missing persons under the "Federal Missing Children Act of 1982,'' 28 U.S.C.A. 534, as amended.

    EAS Amber Alert

    The AMBER Plan is a voluntary partnership between law enforcement agencies and broadcasters to activate an urgent bulletin in the most serious child-abduction cases. New Hampshire is adopting the FCC EAS standard for child abduction emergencies; it will not use the AMBER name.

    In May 2002 the FCC adopted a rulemaking revising many aspects of EAS. Among other things, it created 21 new event codes including CAE (Child Abduction Emergency).When law enforcement agencies are convinced a child has been abducted they will use EAS to deliver vital information to the broadcast media. The intent is that broadcasters will voluntarily relay the information to listeners and viewers, creating thousands of extra eyes and ears to look for the victim and perpetrator.

    WHAT ARE THE CRITERIA?
    *Law enforcement confirms a child under the age of 17 has been abducted
    *They believe the circumstances surrounding the abduction indicate that the child is in danger of serious bodily harm or death
    *There is enough descriptive information about the child, abductor, and/or suspect's vehicle to believe an immediate alert will help.
