OHP Reaction to Amber Alert

4-14-06 - Authorities first treated the case of Jamie Bolin as a runaway, but finally issued an Amber Alert when another girl told police Jamie had been using a computer to talk with a man online.

With that, the search expanded and the relatively new Amber Alert system became focus across Oklahoma. A call for an Amber Alert comes from the main office in Oklahoma City and that is when authorities all over the state jump into action.

Troop F of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol in Ardmore was notified of the alert Thursday night. Though the Bolin was found missing Wednesday, there is usually a time delay from the time the missing child is reported to the time the alert goes out. That usually lessens the chance that troopers are able to set up roadblocks simply because they do not have an updated area that the abductor could be.

Troopers are keeping a watchful eye out across highways in Texoma looking for the Texas plates as they believe the driver is headed south. But with over 24 hours between Bolin's dissaperance and the issuance of the alert, they are afraid he could already be gone.

Troopers will continue to follow any leads on the case.
