The AMBER alert was established to notify communities of missing children and provide information about the situation in question. If a child with autism goes missing, though, the circumstances can be much more dangerous.

Children with autism can wander far from their homes without understanding the dangers around them. There have been many unnecessary deaths due to children getting lost or falling into bodies of water.

We need to establish a system for children with autism much like the AMBER alert to provide authorities with information about the child's condition, communication abilities, nicknames, favorite spots, etc.

Keep our children with autism safe! Ask the Department of Justice to support a special alert for missing children with autism.

Dear Attorney General Eric Holder,

We all have witnessed the success of the AMBER alert system as hundreds of missing children have returned home safely. It's now time we implement a similar system for children with autism.

Some 90 percent of children with autism are prone to wandering from their homes or families without thought to the dangers around them. Many of these children have wandered into forests, gotten lost in extreme weather or drowned in bodies of water.

The fact is, the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of a child with autism can differ greatly from those of a child without. We need to implement a warning system like the AMBER alert that would notify authorities and communities of a child's triggers, nicknames and favorite spots. This kind of information would be vital to finding a missing child with autism before he or she becomes endangered.

Please do your part to protect missing children with autism by creating an alert system to more effectively reunite families.

Thank you for your consideration.
