Caylee's Law goes into effect in Alabama

Posted: Updated:

A new law aimed at protecting children who go missing is now in effect in Alabama.

Gov. Robert Bentley signed the bill into law Monday morning.

The new law requires parents to report when a child goes missing. It would punish parents who don't immediately do so.

The idea comes from the Casey Anthony case. The Florida mother was acquitted in her daughter Caylee's murder in 2011.
