A committee had stopped the alerts from midnight to 6 a.m. because of complaints.
Ohio has decided to resume sending cellphone alerts of missing children and other emergencies whenever they happen - even in the middle of the night.
The Ohio Amber Alert Steering Committee had halted the cellphone alerts between midnight and 6 a.m. because people complained the loud alarms woke them up in fear.
The committee, however, has decided to resume the 24-hour alerts for people who have phones programmed with the wireless emergency alert. The committee said the urgency of finding an abducted child outweighs the middle-of-the-night disruption.
The alert system is coordinated through the federal government and the cellular phone industry.
There have been two statewide Amber alerts since the system went online in December.
