SAN ANTONIO -- Parents who've lost their child say they immediately go into 'panic mode' -- where 30 seconds can feel like an eternity.
Take it from Julie Vilalobos, a mother whose son was mistakenly dropped off at his old bus stop Tuesday afternoon. Her son was missing for hours until a good Samaritan returned him to Castle Hills Elementary.
"Even if only for a split second, you know the dread that creeps in," explains local developer Stephen Conroy on his website.
The San Antonio developer has come up with a techie way to help parents calm their nerves.
It's called "Location Lock." It's a GPS tracker and locating device with an on-board emergency alert service. The gadget provides parents with their child's location in real time, through 15, 30 and 60-second updates.
The [location] lock can also set invisible boundaries. If the established borders are crossed, the device notifies parents. There's also a panic button that can be pressed in emergency situations.
KENS 5 also found out about the "e Zoom" -- a small device that fits in a backpack. The pocket-finder has a GPS system that can check your child's location and create safe zones.
The Amber Alert system featured in the "e zoom" can also alert a parent if their child comes within 500 feet of a registered sex-offender's residence. It too sports a panic-button feature.
