The law enforcement agency immediately shall commence an investigation based upon the elements of the initial reports. Within a reasonable period of time, and in no case longer than 30 calendar days, follow-up forms from the national crime information center or the Kansas bureau of investigation, or both, shall be given to the reporting party, to be completed and returned to the law enforcement agency. The data reported on the follow-up forms shall be entered immediately into the missing person system of the national crime information center and the missing and unidentified person system of the Kansas bureau of investigation.

(b) The reporting party shall be advised to immediately notify the law enforcement agency in the event the missing person returns or is located. Except as provided further, the law enforcement agency shall immediately notify the reporting party if the missing person is located or contacted. The law enforcement agency investigating the report shall not give information to the reporting party if the law enforcement agency has reason to believe the missing person is an adult or an emancipated minor and is staying at or has made contact with a domestic violence or sexual assault program and does not expressly consent to the release of this information. Upon location of or contact by the missing person, the law enforcement agency shall clear the case in the national crime information center and Kansas bureau of investigation databases.
