According to the FBI, "A child goes missing every 40 seconds in America." Many never return home.

Now the FBI has a Child ID app available for download (for iPhones) from the App Store on iTunes.

The app allows you to add photos of your children, along with key information. In the unlikely event you child goes missing you can quickly email the information to authorities.

The app also will allow you to electronically store photos and vital information about your children so it is literally right in your hand if you need it.

The app also had tips on child safety, as well as specific guidelines on what to do in the first crucial hours after a child goes missing.
