Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global provider of critical event management (CEM), has announced its global platform and mass notification solutions helped law enforcement locate a missing 15-year-old in New Jersey as the company marks six years of partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, the company said.
The autistic teen left his home late at night prompting family to contact local police. Authorities deployed officers to the area and launched an Everbridge alert to residents in the region. An observant citizen who received the alert spotted the teenager and called authorities, reuniting the teen with his family.
The New Jersey success story follows that of a 12-year-old girl who was reported missing in Indiana last month. Police sent an Everbridge notification to the community and the girl was safely located.
The ongoing partnership between Everbridge and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) began in 2014. In the ensuing six years, the joint collaboration resulted in bringing hundreds of cases to the organization´s attention.
Everbridge supports first responders in over 3,700 municipalities and counties within 49 of the 50 United States, including the entire states of California, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Connecticut, and Florida, as well as within all of Canada´s provinces and throughout Europe and Asia.
