OWENSBORO, Ky. — The Greenville Police Department has a new tool to help find missing children, college students and elderly people.
"A Child Is Missing" is similar to reverse 911. When a report comes in that a child or adult has wandered off or is missing, a description of the missing person is called into the alert system based in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
