Is Raquel Allen Missing?

I received a message from a member telling me of an AMBER Alert in Michigan. Anyone who has been to our main forum knows Michigan's AMBER Alert Plan is the worst in the nation.

So as usual I did an extensive search and found NOTHING.

Then I emailed The Detroit Police Department's Chief,PR Person and webmaster:

"FromWhispersToRoars Admin"
Subject: Amber Alert for Raquel Allen

I received this alert through Shopwise. I have searched EVERY news and site in Michigan for an update. The alert is as follows:

and that's it.

How can anyone expect a child to be found in Michigan when the alert system is nonexistant. Where can I find more information on this child and maybe a poster. And before anyone suggests the MSP site don't bother,they have nothing also.I'm sorry if I seem rude but this isn't the first time I have had trouble with Michigan's Amber Alert Plan and it is the children who suffer.

Last time I emiled the Chief and PR person they bounced back .I am hopeing the Webmaster can help if that is the case again.

Thank you,


If you can find any information on this child please post it. And feel free to email the Chief with your concerns.

    I just tried the email addy and it did not bounce.

    Michigan is noted though as I remember back a few months ago it seemed like one news media had a return of 300 plus Amber Alerts being issued. It seemed at the time that Michigan did not have any criteria for issuing an amber Alert.

    Give it time. They take about an hour beofre you get the mailer Daemon. And Today I got the second email for the PR person bounce back also.

    2 strikes just waiting on the webmaster now.

    I had spoken with a news director in Michigan 2 weeks ago about a different alert. She told me AMBER Alerts in Michigan are sent only to that city and the area the Police think the person is going. And no they aren't always right.

    Hey...good ole Michigan could give Florida,NY,and a few other states lessons on how to ignore children.It wasn't always this's just our Beloved Canadian Gov. is truly more concerned with her make up...than anyones' child. MSP has always maintained an excellent agency tho. Too bad their hands keep getting tied.I'd move out of the state,but I then I wouldn't be able to annoy my adult chidren as much.
