Rep. Pak Proposes '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 quickly, The 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 Anthony's mother, Casey Anthony, was acquitted on charges of murdering 2-year-old Caylee. 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.

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

We often say "there ought to be a law"... in this case there really needs to be one. Thanks B.J.
