The United States has since developed the ''Amber Alert'' system, so in many cases, within a few hours of an abduction, a report of a missing child can be broadcast on TV or radio, sent via text message or in some cases posted on Expressway notice signs. This means that in some cases the announcement can be passed on to the public in mere minutes, which makes the several weeks notice it would take to get a photograph on a milk carton superfluous. They are supplemented by ADVO cards, which have an ad on the front and a picture of a missing child on the back, and are mailed regularly to homes. Many large stores also have a collection of "missing" posters displayed near the doors, where customers entering and exiting can see them.
