A year after girl killed, Navajo Nation to get alert system

Candles burn at a memorial for Ashlynne Mike, who was abducted and murdered, on the Navajo Nation southwest of Farmington, N.M. The Navajo Nation has signed a contract to purchase software to finally implement an emergency notification system.
Eleven-year-old Ashlynne Mike was abducted and murdered in 2016. A Native American tribe that spans three western states is closer to having its own system for alerting the public when children go missing or there are other emergencies such as wildfires, hazardous waste spills or road closures. The Navajo Nation has signed a contract to purchase software to finally implement an emergency notification system.
