Caylee's Law

Messages Sent So Far
Caylee Anthony was missing for a month and during that time she was never reported as missing. A strict law should be in place that charges a parent or caregiver with child abuse or neglect if a child is not reported missing within 24 hours after the moment of knowledge that the child is missing or failure to return home when due from event or visitation. We need make it a felony for parents or caregivers to not report the death of a child to authorities -- accidental or otherwise -- within one hour. It also would make it a felony for guardians to not notify law enforcement of the disappearance of a child within 24 hours. Children depend on the parents or the caregivers to see to their safety and well being. It is clearly not in the best interest of a child to fail to report they are missing. This is clearly a case of neglect to fail to report a missing child. We the citizens of our great nation understand that these children are our future. Our future should be more protected.

I am asking anyone who agrees with this to help in establishing a Caylee,s Law so that no child's life is ever so tragically erased or ignored again. If we don't establish a Caylee's Law more missing children could go unreported.

Such a shame something so horrible has to happen for our government to consider a law.

I can't believe that this isn't written in law already. Get it done.

Missing Children's or the law only requires children (or anyone) to be missing for at least 24 hrs before reporting ... I think in the way of a minor (anyone under 18) should be reported ASAP!! Children go missing every day and so much could happen within that time frame.. If it is child abuse to 'neglect' your child/ren in the way of feeding them, clothing them, bathing them, and providing your undecided attention to them as a parent or a guardian, if it is child abuse abuse your child phsyically, mentally and emotionally, and if you will lose your child/ren over these reasons then it OUGHT TO BE A FELONY NOT TO REPORT YOUR CHILD/REN MISSING when you do not know where they are! Oh wait? Did you know where Caylee was at? Maybe that's why you never reported her missing! So much I could say, but I'll refrain for now

I watched practically that whole trial and an injustice was definitely committed toward Cayley Anthony. Not only was there sufficient evidence for murder, it was sufficient evidence against Casey Anthony to convict her. Such a travesty!!!

I believe this law should have degrees, the same as murder. Where an accidental failure would be 2nd or 3rd degree, and an intentional failure would be 1st degree neglect.
