Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Missing Persons Identification Act. Removes a provision allowing a law enforcement agency to attempt to obtain a DNA sample from the missing person or a DNA reference sample created from family members' DNA samples for submission before 30 days after acceptance of a report. Provides that a law enforcement agency may not establish or maintain a policy that requires the observance of any waiting period before accepting a missing person report. Removes provisions prohibiting refusal of acceptance of missing persons reports based on lack of personal knowledge or for any other reason. Adds provisions about multiple reports for the same missing person. Requires a law enforcement agency to notify a person responsible for the missing person's welfare, or other specified individuals, about specified efforts to locate a missing person. Provides that, if a missing person remains missing for 30 days after the date of report the law enforcement agency shall immediately (rather than may) generate a report of the missing person within the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, and the law enforcement agency shall (rather than may) attempt to obtain specified information and materials that have not been received. Modifies the information and materials are required to attempted to obtain. Modifies the definition of "high-risk missing person". Upon receipt of a missing person report (rather than immediately), requires the responding local law enforcement agency to enter all collected information relating to the missing person case in the Law Enforcement Agencies Data System and the National Crime Information Center. Makes other changes to the reporting requirements. Modifies requirements for submission of fingerprints from unidentified remains for analysis as well as other requirements relating identified human remains. Provides that an assisting law enforcement agency, medical examiner, coroner, and the Illinois State Police may not close an unidentified person case until the individual has been identified and must keep the case active. Requires the coroner, medical examiner, or assisting law enforcement agency to obtain a biological (rather than DNA) sample from any individual whose remains are not identifiable, and modifies how the sample may be analyzed and labeled. Makes other changes.
