Oklahoma Woman Launches "Caylee's Law" Petition For Missing Children

Amongst the swarm of outrage left behind by the "not guilty" verdict in the Casey Anthony trial, an Oklahoma woman is starting an online petition, asking Congress to create a law making it a federal offense for a parent or guardian to not report a child's disappearance.

The petition is named "Caylee's Law" after the two-year-old child belonging to Casey Anthony, who was found dead in a wooded area in Florida.

The petition went up earlier this week, and has already received mounting support from almost 40,000 people.

Caylee Anthony was missing for about a month before she was reported missing by her grandmother, a situation this petition hopes to cease in the future.

One OK Representative wants to introduce similar legislation next year.
