Kidnapped Utah teen’s dad backs Frost

Houston Chronicle • Sunday September 19, 2004

Elizabeth Smart’s father says he supports the representatives child welfare efforts

DALLAS – The father of kidnapped Utah teenager Elizabeth Smart endorsed Rep. Martin Frost on Friday, saying he supports the Democrat’s efforts involving child welfare.

Ed Smart said Frost, of Dallas, should be re-elected for advocating a federal Amber Alert system, which broadcasts emergency messages in the event of a suspected child abduction.

“This man here made it happen,” Smart, a Republican, said in a story for today’s editions of the Dallas Morning News.

“He’s … dedicated to the betterment of our society.”

Amber Alerts were named after an Arlington girl who was kidnapped and killed in 1996.

Smart’s daughter was found alive and safe by authorities after nine months in captivity.

Frost faces Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Dallas, in a congressional race.
