Two days ago subscribers of the Texas Alert System got a bit of a shock when they received an alert to be on the lookout for a kidnapper named Chucky and his son Glen. Yes, really.


Issued on January 28th, the Amber Alert described Chucky as being a suspect, standing 3inches tall, weighing 16 pounds, wearing overalls, having red hair, and being 28-years-old. Glen, the reported kidnap victim, was described as a 5-year-old weighing 6 pounds, and being 2 feet 3 inches tall. To top it off, the alert also featured photos of the pair with a real number to call to report any sightings.




Deadline reports that the Alert System apologized for the mistake. But we are guessing someone probably lost their job over it.


The Texas Alert System told television station KENS 5  that the alert “is a result of a test malfunction. We apologize for the confusion this may have caused and are diligently working to ensure this does not happen again.”


Just in case you’ve been living under a rock somewhere, Chucky is the lead character of the Child’s Play franchise that began in 1988 and was created by Don Mancini. Glen, Chucky’s non-binary son with Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) was born in 2004’s Seed of Chucky. Also, there’s a new TV series titled “Chucky” in the works from Mancini for Syfy.


Mancini shared the alert on social media frantically begging for help finding the pair.
