Vermont Public Radio reports that "a test of Vermont's Amber Alert system - a law enforcement program to get notifications out quickly when children go missing - turned up a problem Thursday morning." Indeed, "Vermont State Police officials say a mass e-mail that was supposed to go a large number of recipients did not work as planned." By Thursday afternoon, "authorities say they were able to correct the problem." Vermont has only used the alert program once, "this past June when 12-year-old Brooke Bennett of Braintree disappeared. She was later found dead and her uncle, 42-year-old Michael Jacques of Randolph, has been charged with abducting, raping and killing her."
