Provides that the responding local law enforcement agency shall submit a packet of all relevant reports and DNA samples to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System within 30 days of collecting the information for any high-risk missing person cases and shall also submit any DNA samples voluntarily obtained from family members to a National Missing and Unidentified Persons System partner laboratory for DNA analysis within 30 Days.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
50 ILCS 722/5
50 ILCS 722/10

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Missing Persons Identification Act. Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill with these changes. Provides that the law enforcement agency shall attempt to gather at the time of the missing person report: (1) a DNA sample of the missing person; and (2) a DNA reference sample created from family members DNA samples for submission to the Department of State Police or a National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) partner laboratory. Provides that if the person identified in the missing person report remains missing after 30 days, but not more than 60 days, the law enforcement agency shall generate a report of the missing person within NamUs, and the law enforcement agency shall attempt to obtain the additional information and materials that have not been received. Provides that the law enforcement agency shall attempt to obtain a DNA sample from the missing person or a DNA reference sample created from family members DNA samples for submission to the Department of State Police or a NamUs partner laboratory. Provides that samples collected for DNA analysis shall be submitted to a NamUs partner laboratory or other resource where DNA profiles are entered into local, State, and national DNA Index Systems within 30 days (rather than immediately submitted to the Department of State Police for analysis).
