There should be a new law created called Caylee's Law that will make it a felony for a parent or guardian to not notify law enforcement of a child going missing within 24 hours

Let's keep another case like Caylee Anthony out of the courts.  Contact your State Senators and Representatives.

      Children need to be safe. It is a parents responsibility to keep them safe. It should be a law that a parent must report a missing child immediately.

      Children are Innocent. They look towards their Parent (s) to Protect and keep that child safe to the utmost extreme, Nurture, Teach, and to Love them unconditionally. If you are going to bring a child into this world it is your duty to do this and more. If any of my children or grandchildren were missing, I wouldn't wait 24 hrs and I would be out looking immediately. I am frustrated over the fact that Caylee is no longer here because of a situation her own mother put her in which caused her death. I'm frustrated because of the outcome of the whole case and how it was handled by our judicial system. The public can make this happen in Caylee's name, so her death would not be in vain if we can help other children that might be in a similar situation as hers.
