Authorities searching for missing children in California have just gotten six thousand new pairs of eyes. San Francisco´s SBC Communications says field technicians will now be paged whenever an alert is issued. The pagers will show them all the information available, including the vehicle the suspect and the child are riding in. That will let those repair people and installers keep an eye out for the vehicle and the kidnap victim as they travel around the state doing their jobs. SBC used to be Pacific Bell.
San Francisco police spokesman Neville Gittens says using SBC technicians to watch for kidnappers is just another tool to help recover abducted children and lock up their kidnappers.
