Kelly's Law - Require NCIC Listing for Adult Missing Persons within 12 hrs.

    1. Petition by

The NCIC database enables State and Federal law enforcement  to enter a missing persons name and match records in the event of a recovery, the location of remains, or other evidence associated with the missing person. Having the most complete listing of missing persons across the country would increase the chances of either finding the missing person alive and safe, or recovering their remains and giving their family the answers they so desperately need and deserve.

Currently, The National Child Search Assistance Act of 1990 requires each federal, state, and local law-enforcement agency to enter information about missing children younger than the age of 18 into the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database The Act also establishes state reporting requirements.
The law was Amended in 2006 to require entering a child 20 or younger into the database within 2 hours of them being reported missing. There is no requirement for adults 21 and over, let alone a time frame.

We are fighting for this law in honor and in memory of Kelly Rothwell who has been missing since March 12th, 2011 and has since been presumed deceased.

To date, Kelly Rothwell does not appear in the NCIC database.

      There appears to be some confusion by Law enforcement as well as the Congressman's office that this bill would apply to Florida Only.
