Once again, Police are reminding the public to NOT use 9-1-1 as a venue to complain about Amber Alerts. 
You should have seen a notification on your phone early Thursday morning, as 2 kids from Newmarket were missing, allegedly with their Grandfather, who Police had simply thought had got himself lost. 

The Alert was later called off, as all three were found safe...

But hundreds across the Province continue to call 9-1-1 to complain about the notification...

Police say the decision to use the Amber Alert is not taken lightly.
