News 3 Investigates | Local missing child case sparks conversation over AMBER Alert criteria

Every moment a child like Codi Bigsby is missing, the likelihood of finding them safe and sound becomes grim.

“Each day it becomes harder to believe Codi Bigsby is alive and well,” said Hampton Police Chief Mark Talbot during a news conference about the four-year-old’s disappearance last week.

Talbot said the Hampton Police Department enlisted the help of the FBI and other local law enforcement agencies early in the investigation to find Codi Bigsby. However, several in the community expressed concerns over the lack of an AMBER Alert in the toddler’s case. Talbot explained that because investigators didn’t find evidence of an abduction, Codi Bigsby’s case didn’t qualify for an AMBER Alert.
