Morcombe's deliver warning message to Gladstone students

BRUCE and Denise Morcombe were in Gladstone yesterday speaking to students, with the aim of arming them with skills they believe would have saved their son, Daniel.

The Morcombes have dedicated their lives since Daniel's abduction and murder in 2003 to educating children about personal safety.

The Daniel Morcombe Foundation, established in 2005, has created a range of child safety resources.

The Daniel Morcombe Foundation has also developed a Help Me app that allows users to press a button that sets off an alarm and sends their location via GPS to nominated recipients.

"If you think that something is wrong, then it probably is. Body clues tell us that something is not right. React to your body clues, open the app and hit the alarm button," Mrs Morcombe told Trinity students.

The Morcombes are asking Australians to "turn the town red" on October 28 as a part of the Day for Daniel event.
