The Texas Department Of Public Safety has apologized after an Amber Alert was issued featuring the ‘Chucky’ doll from the horror movie “Child’s Play.”

The alert was a test using the fictional characters and descriptions as placeholders and was not meant to be issued to the public.
“Thank you for contacting us. This was actually a test we were running on a dev server and it accidentally went out,” Ruben Medina of DPS told Houston’s KPRC-TV. “We appreciate you reaching out to us to verify this. We do apologize for this inconvenience (to) you.”
“Child’s Play” debuted in 1988 where the spirit of a murderer possesses a toy doll.
