With the federal government closed due to Hurricane Sandy,
the Justice Department had to cancel Monday morning's announcement of how
Google will expand the AMBER alert system online.

The broadcaster-launched
warning system
has helped recover 591 missing children since its inception
in 1997 following the kidnapping and murder of Amber Hagerman in Arlington,
Texas.

Google
already has a "gadget"
that can be added to iGoogle pages to display
AMBER alert status in particular states.

No word on when that event would be rescheduled.
