About 'Amber: The Girl Behind the Alert' Premiere
Twenty-seven years ago in Arlington, Texas, a nine-year-old girl named Amber Hagerman was riding her bike in the parking lot of a vacant grocery store, which was located near her grandmother’s house. A witness, Jim Kevil, later spoke to law enforcement, reporting that he saw someone in a black pickup truck kidnap the young girl as she kicked and screamed.
Sadly, four days after she disappeared, Amber’s body was discovered in a nearby creek. Though the case remains unsolved and Amber’s killer is still out there somewhere, this tragic story was monumental in saving other children. As a result of the Amber Alert, thousands of kids have been reunited with their parents after a kidnapping.
