Posted August 7th, 2014 at 7:24AM by Michelle Sigona

iceIt’s one of the first apps of its kind and it was developed by ICE, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  The goal is to sniff out child predators with the public’s help.

All tips can anonymously be reported through the app, by phone or online.

ICE Acting Director John Sandweg says, “When children are being sexually abused and exploited, it’s a race against the clock to rescue the child and bring the predator to justice.  These investigations are one of our highest priorities, and in today’s world, we need to be technologically savvy and innovative in our approach.”

An ICE press release says, ICE’s public relations division and members from the HIS Cyber Crimes Center invented the app, along with the help from field offices across the country.

It was October 27, 1989 when Melanie Melanson, a 14-year-old freshman disappeared after a night out with friends in the woods.  The Middlesex District Attorney’s office says Melanie was specifically with a group of five friends, before she vanished.

It’s been more than 24 years since anyone has seen or heard from Melanie, and her family and the DA’s office isn’t giving up on her.  In fact, Melanie’s family is still teaming up with companies and releasing billboards with her picture and information on them.

Just this week, three billboards are in place north of Boston just in time for Melanie’s birthday.  On November 1, Melanie would have turned 39.

If you know anything about this case, please contact: 866-637-4907 or email melaniemelansontips@gmail.com.
