Take a Picture

Last week, a friend of mine shared a tip on Facebook that makes a lot of sense for parents: Take a photo of your child with your phone whenever you go to an event.

This provides a recent photo of the child, which you may not have on your person, and what the child is wearing on that day. If the child ends up getting lost or worse, you will have crucial information to help the authorities find him or her.

In child abductions, time and information are important factors, as statistics show that the first three hours are crucial to recovery, according to the Office of Justice Programs. You can also help locate other missing children by signing up for Wireless Amber Alerts.
