Hoax text message circulating in Lawton

LAWTON, Okla. - A text message spreading across Lawton is a hoax. The message says 'Lawton Amber Alert 3-year-old boy taken by man driving an '06 Mitsubishi Eclipse, plate #98B351 keep it going'.

7NEWS checked with Lawton Police and the Comanche County Sheriff's Department who both say this text message is not true.

A check of snopes.com, shows the phony message has been circulating across the country since october. A check on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's website confirms this is not an active Amber Alert.
