Oklahoma Amber Alert officials want to remind individuals that the program is still in effect despite the website's notice.
Several federal programs have been affected as the government shutdown enters its second week. One of those being the national Amber Alert website.
According to the website, those visiting are greeted by a sentence that states: "Due to the lapse in federal funding, this Office of Justice Programs (OJP) website is unavailable."
KTUL contacted a spokesperson for the Oklahoma Amber Alert program who stated that only the informational side of the website is down. He went on to add that "the Amber Alert program has NOT been shut down."
"Oklahoma has it's own Amber Alert program and it is not affected by the government shut down. The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children continues to provide operational support for each AMBER Alert Program in the nation. Nothing has changed."
According to a report from the Associated Press, the shutdown has pushed hundreds of thousands of workers off the job, closed national parks and museums and stopped an array of government services.
