I received this today:

Amber Alert.

Staff Sergeant Rick Williams
Wichita Falls Police Dept.
1007 N. Elm St.
Wichita Falls, Texas 76310
(940) 696-3671
Fax (940) 691-6346

Please look at the picture, read what his mother says, then forward this message on.

My 15 year old boy, Evan Trembley, is missing.
He has been missing for now two weeks.

Maybe if everyone passes this on, someone will see this child.
That is how the girl from Stevens Point was found by circulation
of her picture on tv. The internet circulates even overseas,
South America , and Canada etc.
Please pass this to everyone in your address book.
With GOD on his side he will be found.

'I am asking you all, begging you to please
forward this email on to anyone and everyone
you know, PLEASE.

It is still not too late. Please help us. If anyone
knows anything, please contact me at:
I am including a picture of him.

All prayers are appreciated! ! '

It only takes 2 seconds to forward this.

If it was your child, you would want all the help you could get!!

When I get one of these e-mails, I immediatly check: (the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children)
and (America's Most Wanted)
To date Evan is not listed on either site! Possibly it may take a little longer to appear.


Evan Trembley alert is a recycled hoax

Compare the text in this one to that in the Ashley Flores hoax from last year:

Which, in turn, was adopted from the Penny Brown hoax e-mail:


Kid created his own hoax

I did some more research and found that Evan Trembley is indeed a real Texas teen, but he's not missing. In fact, he created this hoax about himself after seeing a similar chain letter posted on MySpace. I just posted an article on it here:

Thank you all, I received this email and it is amazing that something like this can have such legs to carry on, but appreciate knowing the truth that it is a hoax. It is a shame that one takes the time to create this nonsense, when there are legitimate missing children out there who could so much better benefit from our time and efforts.


great site, thanks!

I was forwarded this message this morning by a friend. Before I fell for it, I decided to dig around. I found this site and one other, "truth or fiction" WHICH I forwarded to my friend. I hope she's learned her lesson and stops sending me junk mail without looking into it first! truth or fiction said this: "There is no Amber Alert issued by the Wichita Falls police department and police Staff Sergeant Rick Williams doesn't exist either. The rank "Staff Sergeant" is a military term, not one used among police forces.

Also, if you look up the telephone number listed for the police department in this email it actually returns as the personal number for someone named Tammy Trembley who, it turns out, is Evan's mother and is none too pleased about all the telephone calls she's gotten about this.

The wording of the forwarded email is not very original. Much of the message is identical to an appeal to help find 13-year old Ashley Flores, which is also a hoax."
