Kate McCann backs the new Child Rescue Alert. The Sky News article states that the alert system is based on the American Amber Alert model. It isn't! With the 116 numbers having been set aside some years ago, the UK is one of the last EU member states to introduce this system, which is actually based on the French Alerte Enlèvement model, as introduced to the EU by the then French Justice Minister Rachida Dati. The McCanns attempted to persuade EU member states to adopt the American system at a time when the French system was already being rolled out across Europe.
