 FOX'S 'AMERICA'S MOST WANTED' REPORTS ON NEW TECHNOLOGY
 THAT HELPS FIND MISSING CHILDREN
 Computer Convention Will Display Technology That Aids in Age
 Progression and Facial Reconstruction Technology
 WASHINGTON, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- For a special remote broadcast about missing children on Friday, Nov. 20 (8-9 p.m. ET/PT), Fox's "America's Most Wanted" will visit COMDEX '92, the nation's largest computer convention, to preview the largest computer convention, to preview the latest computer technology available to help search for these youngsters.
 "In the past year, several computer companies have developed some superb tools to aid law enforcement and missing children's agencies," AMW Executive Producer Lance Hefin said. "In looking for missing children, law enforcement officials face a lot of problems, such as the fact that as children age they look different, which these new computer aids can help alleviate."
 Among the new computer technology which "America's Most Wanted" will feature during the COMDEX '92 remote in Las Vegas are:
 -- A data discman of missing children developed by the SONY Corp. of America. Made available at cost to law enforcement agencies, this disc contains the latest photographs and data on hundreds of missing children;
 -- Age progression software from IBM Corp. that enhances dated images of missing youngsters;
 -- Also from IBM, the multimedia program "Have You Seen Me?" which facilitates the transmission of both pictures and sound for television station broadcasting and other outlets, such as video monitors in shopping malls and airports;
 -- Photography sketch software for age progression and facial reconstruction from QMA Software/Infotech; and
 -- Other available software tools from Micrographx, a fundraising supporter of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
 In addition to the report from COMDEX '92, this episode of "America's Most Wanted" will announce the formation of "The Missing Child Alert," an expanded effort with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to aid law enforcement search for missing children.
