In Oregon as in most states, an Amber Alert  is not issued when a child runs away (regardless of their age) or if it involves a custodial situation. There are 21 children in Oregon listed at the NCMEC as missing. These are some of the children listed as “Endangered Missing” or “Endangered Runaways”. Some are believed to be traveling with an adult.

Since 2002, Amber Alerts have been activated 12 times in Oregon — none of those incidents stemmed from Malheur County — and 14 children were recovered.Even though children are taught about “stranger danger,” none of the state’s activations involved child abductions by strangers, OSP Capt. Ed Mouery said.Amber Alerts in Oregon are a “low-frequency, high risk type of deal,” Mouery said.
