(ARKANSAS CITY, Kan.) — Officials in Cowley County are holding a mock Amber Alert drill in Arkansas City today.
The drill will help the state’s new Child Abduction Response (C.A.R.T.) receive certification.
In the drill, a 14-year-old girl was abducted by a man who dragged her into his car while walking her younger brother to school.
It's only a drill in Cowley County, but State and local officials say they hope this training will help get faster more efficient results when looking for missing children.
"You only have about three hours when a child goes missing until they are likely killed," said Arkansas City Chief of Police Shawn Wallace.
