2 Hour Missing Persons Reports

KSAL StaffFebruary 15, 2016

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas law enforcement would be required to file a missing person report within two hours of receiving a minimum amount of information under a bill approved by a Senate committee.

The measure that passed Monday in the Senate Corrections and Juvenile Justice Committee sets a specific time period in which the report must be provided to the National Crime Information Center and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Under current law, reports simply need to be entered “as soon as practical.”

Overland Park Republican Rep. Greg Smith is chairman of the committee and wrote the current law, which went into effect in 2013. His daughter was abducted and killed in 2007.

The committee on Tuesday will debate changes on a bill that would overhaul the juvenile justice system.
