(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The Amber Alert will be put to the test today for the second time in a year.

The test will be initiated this morning by the Sandy City Police Department and the Utah Amber Alert Advisory Committee. Attorney General Mark Shurtleff will also be on hand, joined by several mothers of kidnapped children, including the mother of Trisha Autry and the mother of Rachael Runyan.

Today will be the second time the alert will be tested, which coincides with Missing Children's Day.

The first test of the Amber Alert was last September 19 on the anniversary of the day three-year-old kidnapped Rachael Runyan's body was found in 1982.

The alert is tested twice each year.
