The abduction alert plan is a massive and immediate alert system deployed to help in the search for a presumed abducted child. It is largely inspired by the “Amber Alert” plan, created in Texas in 1996, after the kidnapping and murder of little Amber Hagerman.

Adopted in France in February 2006, it consists of launching a massive alert in the event of the kidnapping of a minor child to mobilize the population in the search for the child and his abductor. It is only activated if several criteria are met: there must be a proven abduction and not a simple disappearance, the victim must be a minor, his physical integrity or his life must be in danger and information must allow him to be located. .

Its previous activation dates back to May 25 for the kidnapping of little Eya, 10, by her father in Isère. The procedure had been lifted before the girl was finally found safe and sound with her father the following day in Denmark.
