According to a report from the Associated Press, children's advocates are asking the Texas Department of Public Safety to reconsider its policy for issuing amber alerts.
This comes after the department refused to issue one for 11 year old Julissa Rodriguez, after her mother reported her missing last week.
Right now, to issue an amber alert in Texas, the child needs to have been taken from his or her home unwillingly.
Some say the policy isn't broad enough.
