A child is reported missing every 40 seconds in the United States. The FBI has released an app for the iphone that allows you to store and update information and pictures of your child of your choosing and at your discretion in the event an emergency presents itself where law enforcement must act quickly.

From the itunes store…

“The free FBI Child ID app provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about your child so that it’s literally right at hand if your child goes missing. You can show the pictures and provide physical identifiers such as height and weight to security or police officers on the spot. Using a special tab on the app, you can also quickly and easily e-mail the information to authorities with a few clicks. The app also includes tips on keeping children safe as well as specific guidance on what to do in those first few crucial hours after a child goes missing.”

The app only stores the information on your phone. When the emergency arises the app pushes the only the information to authorities. They do not collect and store the data.

The app is free and can be reviewed here. The app will be available soon on other platforms.
