Police: Predators use texting apps to stalk children

There's a new way predators are getting access to children -- through their cellphones.

Police say children are using texting apps that allow members to chat with each other, which is how a criminal can get access to a child.

"Naked pictures are the fuel that gives the predator the stimuli until they can actually meet that live child," Detective Mike Harris said.

There is an app for parents, called My Mobile Watchdog, which can help you track your child's cellphone and texting activity.
