Believe it or not, even though not even 20 percent of the government is actually “shut down,” the federal government’s Amber Alert site has been taken offline, so reports Twitchy.

A look at AmberAlert.gov finds only this:

null

Futile suggestions: If the Obama administration would divert any of the money being spent to pay people to put up barricades at memorials and monuments, place traffic cones to prevent people from getting roadside glimpses of Mt. Rushmore, and police portions of the ocean, I’m sure enough funding could be scraped together to keep the Amber Alert site up to date.

Somehow though, a different site on the dot-gov domain has not gone dark due to the shutdown. “Let’s Move” is still up and running. Go figure.

Update: Amber Alert site back up?
