Albany- Toys "R"Us is sponsoring the digital Child ID Safety Program.

The store takes photographs of the children, and then workers put the child's identification information and picture on a disk for families to take home. The disk is another tool police can use to find a missing child.

Parent, Heidi Wessinger, says, "I think this is a great tool. If something happened to my son, Hunter, it would be very difficult. This Child ID can help."

You can take your child to Toys'R'US on Saturdays and Sundays between one and five. The disks are free.
