She has already come in to say her piece.
And she is doing what they do in countries including the United States that have adopted the Amber Alert -- by having the picture and details of the missing child widely publicised to ensure that she or he is safely returned in the shortest possible time.
In Malaysia, there is a group called Citizens for Nurin Alert, advocating this system.
As Amber Alert was started in memory of 9 year-old Amber Hagerman who was abducted and brutally murdered in Texas in 1996, it is hoped that 8 year-old Nurin Jazlin's death will not be in vain. Nurin Alert is being advocated in her memory and to save other children, like 5 year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar or Nini who has been missing since Wednesday.
In the absence of such an alert system, Shahrizat is certainly trying her best to "alert" the nation.
Ok..the police are hunting down the abductior/abductors so, on her part, Shahrizat is making an urgent appeal to the media to highlight Nini's disappearance.
To flash her picture every hour or half-hour "so that everyone will know and remember her face.
Shahrizat also said she had asked Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin to publicise Nini's disappearance.
(Reminding and warning the abductors is also part of how enforcement agencies manage Amber Alert.)
Shahrizat was with Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan, Petaling Jaya Selatan MP Donald Lim and Taman Medan Assemblyman Abdul Wahab Ibrahim.

Well, I say Kudos to Kak Ijat!
And that it gets more and more compelling with every new case of a missing child that we have such a thing as Nurin Alert!
