FF12: Attorney General to get KBI Amber Alert review report

TOPEKA, Kan. (KWCH) The Kansas Bureau of Investigation will give the Kansas Attorney General's Office a full review report of the Amber Alert policy Tuesday.

The review stems from an Amber Alert case from early December out of Wichita where a mother and her three children were taken from their home at gunpoint. An Amber Alert was issued but there was never an alert sent to people's cell phones.

FactFinder 12 Investigator Devon Fasbinder found the reason was a mistake by the KBI. The KBI said there was some form of miscommunication and a particular email was not sent to authorize the cell phone alert. The agency called the mistake "human error."

That prompted Attorney General Derek Schmidt to order a top-to-bottom review of the Amber Alert system in Kansas.

That review is due to the AG's office by Tuesday. The KBI tells FactFinder 12 it intends for the review to be in the AG's hands by the end of the business day.

Devon Fasbinder is in Topeka awaiting the release of the report. The AG's office said it will make the report public once it's received.
