New Kansas law hopes to speed police response to missing person reports


A new Kansas law aims to speed up police response to reports of missing people, especially those thought to be in imminent danger.

The law went into affect on Monday.

It requires all police agencies in Kansas to take a missing person report regardless of how long the person has been missing.

The information will then be entered into a computer database used by law enforcement agencies nationwide.

The law also creates a special category of "high-risk missing person" that will allow law enforcement officials to focus their resources on those cases.
