This morning was a stressful one for one Sudbury legal guardian and the Toronto Police. A three-year old boy was reported missing by his guardian at around midnight, when the child and his mother did not return home from the mall, where they had been dropped off at earlier that afternoon.\nAn Amber Alert was sent out early this morning, at around 5:00 a.m, in an attempt to find the child and his mother. The boy and his mother had last been seen boarding a bus to Toronto.\nThe two were luckily found safe just two hours later in the Fort York Boulevard-Lake Shore Avenue West area of Toronto. Many are taking to Reddit and Facebook to complain about how the Amber Alert disturbed them last night.\nTL;DR People are complaining about having been woken up by an Amber Alert last night because the Internet is the worst.\nLittle is known about the mother's motivations for taking the boy to Toronto. The guardian has also not been named by press, and his relation to the boy is not known at this time.\nThe Amber Alert used to locate the mother and son made many people angry. People are complaining that the alert woke them up.\nPeople took to Twitter to complain about the sound of the alarm. One user, for example, seems to consider this to not be a "real emergency":\nThe story of the boy who cries wolf applies here in Ontario for the insane use of the amber alert system. Every option on my phone for it is turned off, but it still rings my phone. One day a real emergency is gonna happen and I will ignore it.— Starsky 🥕 (@StarskyBunny) May 14, 2019\nThis morning at 5am it rang my phone so loud and 3 FUCKING TIMES i had to turn it off. you just woke up 5 million people for one missing child, which 3/4 of us were asleep. Fuck off.— Starsky 🥕 (@StarskyBunny) May 14, 2019\nBecause sleep is more important than "one missing child," I guess...\nREAD ALSO: Top 50 Most Visited Websites In Canada\nOthers just don't care that a kid is missing:\nKeep this shit amber alert out of my phone. Sleeping I can't do anything. This is a job for the Police not for us.— rota7070 (@rota7070) May 14, 2019\n@TPSOperations @TorontoPolice An amber alert that is sent to cellphones of people who are asleep is USELESS! Are you expecting we wake up and help?It’s useful if we are in the car or watching tv at those hours.. The alert is going to lose effectiveness if you keep doing this.— Judith Garza G (@jgarzag68) May 14, 2019\nFuck this #amberalert, seriously, I will hack my phone just to remove this cancer.— UnEconomist Capital (@uneconom1st) May 14, 2019\nThe police took to Twitter to remind people that they should only use 9-1-1 for REAL emergencies. The sass is palpable, but with good reason: no one should complain about a potentially live-saving Amber Alert.\nOnce again our Communications Centre has been receiving a number of calls from citizens using it as a platform to complain about being awaken by the Amber Alert.REMINDER:9-1-1 is for EMERGENCIES ONLY. Please help us to keep our phone lines free for real emergencies. Thanks^adc— Toronto Police OPS (@TPSOperations) May 14, 2019\nSome don't think the Amber Alert is an emergency:\nIf an Amber Alert is not an emergency, then why does it sound like an emergency? Why does it use software designed for life-threatening situations like tsunami warnings? Hmm...what if there was a better way to design the Amber Alert system? https://t.co/r6XzulQXda— strangeattractor (@strangeattracto) May 14, 2019\nA four AM Amber Alert that wakes up ten million people had better have a pretty good justification. So far, all we know that this abduction involved a boy being with his mother. There had better be more.— jeffry house (@jeffryhouse) May 14, 2019\nThe amt of alerts to people outside the area and the sending a second alert sound to cancel it amd for parental disagreement is why people are really getting tired of this. One day people will ignore a real alert and fire flood or tornado will cause loss of life. Wlf!wlf!wmmm@— C T Bird (@CTBird6) May 14, 2019\nOf course, many are making valid points about the fact that the Amber Alert system needs fixing. Some people want to opt out because the sound can startle their children with special needs or people driving on the road.\nOthers mention the fact that the Alert cut out their potentially life-saving phone call. Not to mention the fact that the Amber Alert doesn't include photos of the missing boy, which makes it difficult to identify the potential child.\nLet's end this on a positive note. Remember, Amber Alerts exist to give us all the potential to save a child's life and be a hero:\nI like getting an #AmberAlert - makes me feel like I’m part of a superhero collective.🤷♀️— Corina Diaz (@corecorina) May 14, 2019\nCan we PLEASE try to have a little more compassion for each other? Thank you.\nSource.
