DENVER -- Colorado authorities are emphasizing the importance of turning on Amber Alert notifications.

The reminder comes after some people didn't get Sunday's alert of a missing toddler in Brighton. The toddler is safe.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation said it's very important to make sure the Amber Alert on phones is turned on at all times.

It's an easy fix to turn on the alerts. Go into "settings," then "notifications," then toggle the Amber Alert button from "off" to "on."
