the function
Abs[1 - x]^(1/2) + Abs[x]^(1/2)
has the global minima at x=1 and x=0.

Mathematica finds both solution if this is inputted within the wolfram alpha mode.

In normal mode Mathematica only finds x=0 as a solution of
Min[ Abs[1 - x]^(1/2) + Abs[x]^(1/2), x ]

How can both solutions be found in normal mode?
Thanks for help.
