Raiders' Derek Carr helps locate missing child on Twitter

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- The Raiders' Super Bowl hopes may be dashed, but quarterback Derek Carr didn't need the gridiron to be a hero this week. All he had to do was login to Twitter.

Carr has 237,000 followers, so when he saw an Amber Alert go out from the Oakland police department he retweeted it. Carr's retweet led to a reply that helped locate the missing child.
