FBI app can help locate missing kids

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Parents, there's a new tool to help you keep tabs on your child in case of an emergency. The FBI recently launched the "FBI Child I.D. App." The app allows parents to download pictures of their child and other vital information like age and height into their phone.

The app was created to help parents in the event of an emergency...like if a child were to go missing.

FBI Special Agent, Kevin Sanderson says, "the quicker law enforcement gets information, the quicker they can start a search. If there are photographs that are updated and new, those can be publicized very quickly, the first 24-48 hours are the most important when a child is missing or kidnapped."

The Child I.D. app is currently only available to iPhone users. You can download the app for free from the app store on iTunes.
