BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — For a parent there is nothing like the panic felt when a child is around one moment but then disappears the next.
Anywhere from a crowded amusement park or mall, to grocery store or city park, a child locator alarm can help locate a child in seconds.
The device works by having the parent attach the locator to the child’s shoe.
The parent keeps the transmitter with them usually on a key chain or purse.
When a child goes missing, the parent can press the transmitter and the receiver on the child sends out a loud beeping sound, helping to locate the child.
Here are a few of the places you can find and purchase child locator devices.
