WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s Department of Public Safety is testing the state’s Amber alert system designed to enlist the help of as many people as possible in finding a missing child.

The test takes place Wednesday between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

The system is expected to send out messages to thousands of subscribers. There will also be messages on Vermont Agency of Transportation message boards and through the Vermont Lottery system. Text messages will also go to television and radio stations as well as phone alerts to those who have signed up for the VT-ALERT system.
