There's a new tool in the search for missing children.
Facebook will now have pages for every state where users can sign up and get Amber Alerts sent directly to them.
When Brittany Smith's mother was murdered and the 12-year-old disappeared from their Virginia home last month, state police took their Amber Alert online, to their Facebook page.
Jeff Easley was her mother's boyfriend and the chief suspect.
Within five days Smith was found, alive and in San Francisco.
She was spotted with Easley by someone who had seen her image.
"Social media enabled law enforcement to reach beyond borders beyond our normal footprint," says Virginia State Trooper Colonel Steven Flaherty.
Now Facebook is taking that concept nationwide, partnering with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to create 53 new pages, one for each state and some U.S. Territories.
Facebook's nearly half billion users can become fans, get the alerts and possibly help find the missing.
"This doesn't cost anything," says the Center for Missing and Exploited Children's Ernie Allen. "It's easy to do not going to be a burden. you're not going to be inundated
and it makes a difference."
Officials hope each click can help bring a child home.
This week also marks the 15th anniversary of the abduction and murder of 9-year-old Amber Hagerman, the inspiration for the "Amber Alert.
Since it was first used it has helped bring 525 children home.
