LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - If you've been to a United Express gas station in the past couple of days, you may have seen the Amber Alert for a missing Bullard girl.

10-year-old Kayla Gomez-Orozco was last seen on Tuesday. Now, authorities are offering a $60,000 reward for information.

We went to a United Express gas station and the pump notified us of Gomez-Orozco's Amber Alert.

In fact, it beeped and called for our attention.

For 10 seconds, it provides you information about the case and even allows you to print it out.

Angelos Lambis, Director of Fuel and Convenience for United Express, says the feature just started a month ago.

"It allowed us the perfect opportunity to kind of share messages to the community," he says. "The weather, news alerts and so forth, but really, amber alerts fits right in with the people we have. Our guests who visit every day, they're out and about and what a great way for them to help local law enforcement."

He says it's a way to reach a wider audience and to get the community involved.
