When a trucker goes missing, other drivers join the search

Much like the Amber Alert system for missing children, the Missing Truck Driver Alert Network strives to quickly spread the word whenever a driver is reported missing. That was the case last Monday in northwest Missouri when a Texas driver’s truck was found abandoned outside of Lathrop. His wallet, cell phone and other personal items were found in the truck. The network posted information about the driver and links to news stories about him.
