FBI: Free Child ID App Could Save Lives

Posted: Updated:
The FBI is encouraging parents to download an app designed help report a missing child which could help saves lives.

"The first few hours when a child goes missing are critical - and the information which we need to obtain many times has to come from the parent."

Agent Timothy Gallagher says it can be tough getting an accurate description from panicked parents. So, the agency has developed a free app called Child ID. It allows parents to send photos of their child, along with details such as height and weight to thousands of law enforcement officers with just one touch.

The FBI says it does not collect or store any information entered into the app.
