WALL, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota parents can get help in putting together a kit of information about their children that could be used to identify them should they ever go missing.

The South Dakota Child Identification Program will collect information for the free kits Thursday at the Wall School District office. The kits may include a child’s photos, dental impressions, fingerprints, a DNA cheek swab and video interview.

The information packets will be given to each child’s parents to keep. The kit is meant to aid law enforcement in recovering missing children.

The effort is part of an initiative of the Masons of North American. The South Dakota Academy of Physician Assistants is among the groups that help implement the program in South Dakota.

The event will run from 3:30 to 7 p.m.
