Indeed. Just for reference - In 1989, only 50% of the country had access to 911. That number rose to 99% a decade later but the 80s were a different time. If you hopped in a time machine and talked to little kids about 911 in the 80s, you would get nothing close to what they know today.

Anthonette went missing in 1986. But this line of thinking would be more accurate had she gone missing in 2006.
