FBI Releases App That Helps Parents Find Missing Kids

Parents can use a new iPhone app from the FBI to store photos and important information about their children and alert the authorities in case they go missing.

The FBI Child ID app also offers tips on how to keep your kids safe and what to do if you can’t find them. The app can work in concert with the National Child Identification Program, which provides parents kits to store identifying characteristics such as fingerprints and DNA.
