There are GPS devices that some people around here make their kids
carry. If need be, the device can be remotely interogated and returns
its own position. Similar devices can be installed in cars, so they can
be tracked if they are stolen. I guess these things would work anywhere
in the world. They'd just need a European charger.

I am sure they must be available over there...
