When a family heads off on a family vacation they usually are in a jovial mood and do not stop and think that something could happen to bring that trip to a screeching halt. Unfortunately the more laid back attitude combined with the unfamiliar terrain results in lost children frequently. This is the worst possible scenario for a family vacation and yet it happens whether it is from the child wandering off or from an opportunistic abductor.
A family heading out on a vacation would be wise to add an Amber Alert GPS to the clothing their children are wearing while on vacation in case they get separated from them in a place that is unfamiliar to them all. This little child locator device will allow you to track your child and find their exact location using your web enabled cell phone. Though currently the service is only available in the United States and you must have signal to your cell phone as well as to GPS satellites for it to work. Luckily enough of the country is wired that for the most part you will be covered with your cell phone carrier being the most unknown variable.
For most families the separation with their child is over in a matter of seconds and though extremely scary the lesson is learned to be more diligent to stay together while away from home. While once in awhile a case such as Madeleine McCann comes along and rocks not only the family but also the world, as the child is not found despite huge efforts to find them. With a personal tracking device both the parents and the police can have actual locations of the child sent from the device in order to help find them right away and place the child safely back in the loving arms of the family that misses them so much.
