Abstract:The alert system AMBER Alert has been implemented in multiple European countries and in the USA as to aid the retrieval of missing children. The system is wholly based on the participation of civilians, who can provide clues and other relevant information. In Germany however, the system reaches out to a relatively small percentage of the total population, limiting its effectiveness. This research paper investigate the extent to which the four Extended Parallel Process Model‟s factors (threat severity, threat susceptibility, response efficacy and self-efficacy), combined with conceptions about privacy issues, can predict one individual‟s participative intentions. The results show that self-efficacy has a positive effect on individual participation, while privacy issues undermine participative intentions. Moreover, findings suggest that self-efficacy, and thus participation in general, may be reinforced through the provision of precise and accurate information with regards to the enrolment procedure. The results are useful to the proper development of effective and efficient campaigns for AMBER Alert Deutschland: it is possible to enhance public participation by sustaining self-efficacy and clearing privacy concerns.
