I saw this flyer posted in the window at Walgreens on 10th Avenue South. It states that Rachael Hayes has been missing since August 8; she is 4’11”, 95 pounds, 14 years old, last seen near Benefis East in the company of Colton Custer.
The AMBER Alert system is not used to track runaways, missing children or children involved in custody disputes. The program is restricted to child abduction cases that could be life threatening. The alert must be recommended by the local law enforcement agency of jurisdiction.
While this may not rise to the level of an Amber Alert, I’m sure that her family is very worried about Rachael. If you have seen her – or have information about where she is – please call the Great Falls Police (771-1180) or the family (453-4398).
