Texas Apologizes After Mistakenly Issuing An Amber Alert for 'Chucky' doll and His Son
Many Texans received a very strange Amber Alert notification on the morning of January 29, as they were informed of a fictional horror movie character going missing.
The alert asked citizens to keep an eye out for a 28-year-old red-headed doll standing at 3 feet 1 inch weighing 16 pounds and carrying a huge kitchen knife, named Chucky.
Yes, the same Chucky from the hit 80s horror film "Child's Play."
