Parents Want Missing Children Department Expanded

April 23rd, 2008 by flanews

Parents of missing daughters want lawmakers to extend the search for missing people. Wednesday in Tallahassee Hilary Sessions, whose daughter disappeared almost 20 years ago, met with lawmakers. Sessions along with Joyce and Drew Kesse, whose daughter Jennifer was abducted in Orlando, want the Department of Missing Children to take on cases involving missing people up to the age of 25. Drew Kesse said increasing the age could help more people be found.

It’s a very difficult thing to deal with. Laws just don’t support it. We are trying to strengthen and enhance the existing laws that you see for children, and bring them up into a more conducive state for adults too, said Kesse.

The Senate Passed the bill, now the families are waiting to have the bill heard by the House.
