10:07 MORNING UPDATE: Police warn of suspicious Amber Alert inquiries

GLASGOW — A Facebook post from Simpson County on Thursday has raised concern with parents and law enforcement. 

According to the post, a woman dressed in business apparel went to a home and told the resident she was representing the "Amber Alert System" and inquired about a child in the home. She then asked to be allowed to enter and discuss an informational packet and get information about a child. The woman was denied entry to the home, according to a Glasgow Police Department press release. 

Julie Ann Williams, public affairs officer for the Glasgow Police Department, contacted law enforcement in Simpson County and was told they received a call from another woman that had experienced the same situation, the press release stated. 

The woman stands about 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs between 140 to 150 pounds. She has strawberry blonde/orange hair that is short and curly. She was driving a burgundy or deep red, small SUV, the press release stated. 

Glasgow police caution anyone who may encounter a similar situation not to allow the woman or anyone access to a home or give them any  information about children in the home. It would be best not to have a conversation at all until more is known, the press release stated. 

Should anyone have a similar experience, call the Glasgow Police Department at 651-5151.
