Most come home safely but for about a thousand children, that's not how the story ends.
The most important item used to recover a child is a current photograph.
A new national safety identification program to help parents is here in Dothan. The local Toys-R-Us is one of 700 stores that participate in this electronic ID program.
You can take your child there to have a picture taken and get the disk. Then, return every four to six months to get the photo updated. And it's all free.
