In June, 2012 Don Rittner walked into the Troy Web office with an idea. He wanted to create a mobile application to help locate missing children. From that idea the “Missing Children of New York” mobile app was born. The app is the result of Don’s vision and design, Troy Web’s volunteered technical expertise, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s missing children data. Its launch coincides with the arrival of the 2012 Fireball Run: Northern Exposure in Schenectady, NY. A special thanks also goes out to Gloria Coppola of the NYS Police Troop G - Major Crimes, Loudonville, NY.
