Chucky on the loose? Amber Alert features horrific mistake

“I’ll be back. I always come back.”

Texans were given a fright after officials from the Texas Department of Safety accidentally blasted an Amber Alert featuring a picture of Chucky. According to the report, the ‘Child’s Play’ puppet had abducted his ‘Seed of Chucky’ son, Glen Ray. He was last seen in Henderson, Texas. The alert system is typically used to notify the public of missing children.

Is this a horror movie come to life? Fortunately, the department clarified that it was a result of a test malfunction. Texas officials apologized to the public for the horrific mistake, “We apologize for the confusion this may have caused and are diligently working to ensure this does not happen again.”
