MISSOURI (KFVS) - The Missouri Department of Social Services is experiencing phone service disruptions to the Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline and the Family Support Division Information Center.
According to a release from the department, AT&T cut a fiber optic line in Jefferson City.
Phone services should be restored sometime Thursday night.
The department has set up a temporary fix to enable callers to reach the Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline number (1-800-392-3738), but the earlier disruption has caused a higher volume of calls.
Callers may get a busy signal and are encouraged to call back at a later time.
If a child is in immediate danger, you should call 911.
