The FBI is offering a free app to help reduce the time it takes to locate a missing child. KATC reports, the child's information, like height, weight, hair & eye color can be entered on the Child ID app. If a child goes missing, the information is emailed to local law enforcement. From there, it's easily shared with 911.

FBI Special Agent In Charge Eric Rommal says, “When your child goes missing, you’re in a panic. It’s a crisis situation. You might not be thinking clearly. This will do the thinking for you. You’ve already preloaded that information.”

The app can also be used to locate a missing elder.
