    Looking for Phoenix Washington, black male with 2 yo son, driving a stolen 2011 black Mazda 4 door Lansing police say.

    FOX 17 has been showing it almost non stop since 7:32

    Thankfully I turned my alarm on my phone off. But I keep hearing that annoying noise every few minutes in the office.

    It's so sad when all the amber alerts are for a parent with their own kid.

    Mine just said "black Mazda" with a plate number. That doesn't narrow it down much.

    Manuals narrow down the field of thieves. Especially that not user friendly one.

    So basically, the guy kidnapped his own kid.
    Isn’t that one of the things G Floyd tried?

    Thought I saw something saying 'Found' with no further details.

    I'm still getting three notifications per day--even today on my Android phone. And when I click on the notification it asks me if I want to change my text messenger service to the generic messaging service (called Messages), rather than the one I normally use. With no option to dismiss the message at all.

    I think I can remedy that by turning off notifications from that Messages app, which I just did.

    Not to mention the other day, when the first Amber Alert was put out, it was a super loud noise at like 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning... Not filtered by the do not disturb setting.

    Not really cool.

    Google it. There's a setting to turn off emergency alerts. First thing I do when I get a new phone.
