Al Affleck says the urgency of this system will hopefully net results sooner rather than later because of the huge public volume of facebook.
Afflect says you can also tap in by `liking the Amber Alert Nova Scotia facebook page, and you can also receive a text with updates.

The Alert will only appear in the feeds of people who are in the designated search area, and will let users easily and instantly share the information with friends and family.
