Leaders Propose 'Caylee Anthony's Law'

State Rep. Pak wants to change Georgia's laws to require parents to report missing children "in a timely manner."

Rep. B.J. Pak of Lilburn on Tuesday filed a bill that would make it a crime not to report missing children quicklyThe Associated Press reported.

If passed, Caylee Anthony's Law would "require a parent or guardian to report the disappearance or death of a child in a timely manner," Pak's office said in a statement.

Last year, Caylee's mother, Casey Anthony, was acquitted on murder charges in the 2-year-old's death. In 2008, Caylee hadn't been seen for a month before Casey Anthony's mother reported her missing. Her remains were found almost five months later.

Reps. Pak and Buzz Brockway of Lawrenceville will hold a press conference on Caylee Anthony's Law on Wednesday morning at the state Capitol.
