SECTION 837-F-2
Missing adults
Executive (EXC) CHAPTER 18, ARTICLE 35
§ 837-f-2. Missing adults. In the event that a police agency receives
a report that an adult person is missing from his or her normal and
ordinary place of residence and whose whereabouts cannot be determined
by an individual whose relationship with such adult person would place
such individual in a position to have knowledge of his or her
whereabouts, and that such missing adult person has a proven disability,
or may be in physical danger, or is missing after a catastrophe, or may
have disappeared involuntarily, or is missing under circumstances where
there is a reasonable concern for his or her safety; and such missing
adult person does not qualify as either a missing child pursuant to
section eight hundred thirty-seven-e of this article or a vulnerable
adult pursuant to section eight hundred thirty-seven-f-1 of this
article, the police agency shall collect information necessary to file
an electronic report regarding the missing adult person with the
national crime information center register and submit such electronic
report to the national crime information center register.

The division shall transmit the report of the missing adult to the
National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) within thirty
days after entry of a report of a missing adult into the register
whenever circumstances indicate that the missing adult may be at
immediate risk of death or injury, or may be a match to a record
maintained in the NamUs unidentified person database and within one
hundred eighty days in any other case.
