    If Glenn Harper is 4'5" and 245 lbs, he shouldn't be too hard to notice.

    Surely that’s a misprint.

    I double-checked that at least twice, but that was what it said. Looks like news agencies are now reporting his height at 5'9".

    How do I delete the "Amber Alert" feature on my phone?
    Finally dozed off at about 2am last night when the thing went off.
    2am? Really!
    I can't be the only one annoyed.

    If it was your child would you prefer they wait until noon the next day, 10 hours later?

    You are the third or fourth person that's made nearly the exact same comment, that I have seen.

    Not being insensitive, but I'm not in a position at that time of day to be of assistance.
    I think each individual should have the option as to receive these alerts or not, or at least to silence them.

    I didn't want to post it, but man I was in a deep sleep when that went off.

    I think it's the same system that warns you of tornadoes also, so you may want to leave it turned on. You'd hate to get hit by a tornado because you didn't want to be woke up.

    As far as a solution, there should be some place in your notifications on your phone to turn it off, if you desire. You probably wouldn't get the ones when you're awake and could be of assistance though.

    On IPhone hit settings, go to notifications and then scroll to the bottom to government alerts.

    In general I agree on the alerts.

    Spectrum has some especially annoying (and loud) alerts late at night that are tests. Add those with the real things and I have become desensitized to them all.

    And to note, you can choose to just turn off Amber Alerts, and leave the other emergency alerts on.

    In all honesty though, the value these alerts provide, IMO, far outweigh any minor inconvenience they cause.

    Both amber and emergency alerts are on and I can't remember the last time either one has went off.
