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."

The child that had supposedly been abducted was another doll said to be 5 years old standing 2 feet 3 inches tall weighing 6 pounds named Glen.  

Glen was introduced in the 2004 sequel "Seed of Chucky."

Those who subscribe to TDPS email alerts were the only ones to receive the Amber Alert, and they actually ended up receiving it three separate times according to KTRK-TV in Houston.
