LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 12, 2009) - Code Amber News Service (CANS) www.codeamber.com, a leading syndicator of online Amber Alerts and missing persons notifications, announces its data expansion to include non-Amber missing persons alerts. The downloadable news ticker for personal Web sites is available to consumers and concerned entities. In addition, the CANS Display News Feed is available to enterprises, law enforcement agencies, corporate sponsors and affiliate partners.

CANS is designed to support law enforcement efforts in the recovery of missing persons across the United States and Canada by directly distributing notifications to millions of citizens. The ticker and news feed is delivered to over 500,000 points of distribution through consumer Web sites, display feeds presented by retail merchants, internet service providers, corporate sponsors, affiliate partners, and federal, state local law enforcement and government agencies which, in turn, reach a vast audience of multiple millions during an alert status. It is a leading syndicator of aggregated information from all 50 United States and the Provinces of Canada. The expansion of non-Amber alerts has already garnered tremendous support from its existing channels of distribution.

The CANS Display News Feed is picked up by sites including Google, CNN, and the O'Reilly Factor. It links to more than 150 government and law enforcement agencies including US Senator Mike Crapo of Idaho, the Arizona Department of Public Safety, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, and the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association, to name a few. The CANS Display News Feed is also distributed through corporate sponsors such as Walgreens, AAC, Perftech, and Verifone.

CANS is a registered media outlet and is a member of the Online News Association (ONA) as well as The Radio-Television News Directors Association (RTNDA). The news service hired media veteran Gary McKenzie, former CBS Radio Anchor, as its News Director. "I am very proud to join the Code Amber News Service team," said Gary McKenzie, CANS News Director. "To do good while making good is truly the best of all worlds."

In the coming months CANS will launch its direct-to-mobile phone application enlisting mobile phone owners as search agents on the streets for missing persons across North America. CANS connects us with the events that impact our lives.
