    Officials want parents to be aware of the viral Internet "48-hour challenge" that encourages kids to go missing for two days, according to KFSM.

    Our source says the main goal is to have their picture on social media, and the more likes and shares it receives, the more "points" the teen will get.

    This challenge isn't just scaring parents -- it's also wasting law enforcement resources.

    Be sure to talk with your kids about this and express the seriousness of the situation: it is NOT funny to go missing and NOT funny to have parents and police worry for nothing!
