The FBI launches a mobile application for parents in case their child goes missing. It's the first app released by the agency.

The Child ID app allows parents to electronically store photos and vital information, which can be accessed quickly by law enforcement if a child disappears or is abducted.

The app offers advice on keeping children safe and provides information on what to do first if a child is missing. It also has a quick link to emergency services.

Right now, the Child ID app is free but it's available only for the iPhone.
