The Maui Police Department says the AMBER Alert that aired on KHON2 and other television stations across the state for a missing child was only a test.

As part of the emergency alert system, messages are automatically put out over broadcast media in case of an emergency.

In this case, it was a test mistakenly labeled as an emergency.
