Amber Alert website returns amid shutdown

The Amber Alert website went offline Sunday following the government shutdown, but returned after multiple media outlets reported the problem.

The national alert website for missing children displayed the text, "Due to the lapse in federal funding, this Office of Justice Programs website is unavailable." It also featured a Department of Justice seal. The website was back live at 8 a.m. Monday.

The website normally helps collect and compile reports of missing children across the country.
