Officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety have apologized after an Amber Alert was issued last week featuring the famed killer doll, Chucky.

Thank you for contacting us. This was actually a test we were running on a dev server and it accidentally went out,” Ruben Medina of DPS told Houston’s KPRC-TV. “We appreciate you reaching out to us to verify this. We do apologize for this inconvenience (to) you.

The emergency message was sent out on Friday and included the “Child’s Play” horror series villain along with his fictional child, Glen, reports said.

His race was listed as “Other: Doll.”

Glen Ray, the main protagonist in 2004’s “Seed of Chucky,” was listed as the abductee, and was described as having a “blue shirt and black collar.” Both of their heights appeared to reflect their fictional size in the “Child’s Play” horror franchise.

Even the director and writer of Chucky weighed in on the alert:

Don Mancini, the director, and writer who created the Chucky character responded to the mishap, tweeting: “PLEASE FIND THEM.”
