FBI app to help reunite parents with missing children gets update

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The FBI announced a reboot of its smartphone and tablet application that provides parents an easy way to electronically store their children’s information.

The app, called “FBI Child ID,” stores information such as height, weight and birthmarks and is designed to assist police in case of a missing child.

The updated app now allows for high resolution photos, a default recipient field and optional automatic reminders to update your children’s profile.

You will need to re-enter all relevant information after installing the update if your current version is 2.0 or older.

The FBI says the app has been downloaded more than 250,000 times since it was released in 2011.
