FBI Missing Child App

When it comes to a missing child....TIME can be your greatest ally...the sooner you can get the information out...the better and of course when an emergency occurs...you need to remain calm but act fast!  This is especially true in cases of missing children. The sooner the authorities are notified and have a detailed description, the greater the chances of a safe return.

With this in mind, the FBI have developed and released a new smartphone app to help parents get the word out fast when a child goes missing.  It's called FBI Child ID.  This critical app stores photos and vital description details that can be emailed to authorities–or displayed on the phone–in an instant. (This free app is currently for iPhone only, and can be downloaded in the iTunes App Store.)

People without smartphones can contact their local law enforcement and ask about a Child ID kit that, similar to the Child ID app, stores photos, important details and even fingerprints to help locate a missing child.
