(KMOV.com) – The FBI is encouraging parents to download a new phone app that could help with child identification.

In the mishap of a missing child, the phone app allows parents to send photos of their child along with a description to thousands of law enforcement officers.

"If your child were to go missing, with one push of a button this information is transmitted quicker than you can dial 911,” said FBI special agent Timothy Gallagher.

According the FBI, they will not be collecting or storing information entered into the app.
