Yonkers mayoral candidate calls for 'Caylee's Law'

Just one day after a Florida mom was found not guilty of murdering her daughter, a Yonkers politician has proposed a new law for reporting missing children.

Casey Anthony was found not guilty of murdering her daughter, Caylee, after not reporting the disappearance for 31 days.

Yonkers mayoral candidate Mike Spano is submitting legislation he calls "Caylee's Law," which would make it a federal offense if a parent does not report a child missing within 24 hours of the disappearance.

The state Assembly and Senate are in summer recess, but Spano says the legislation for Caylee's law is already being circulated among his peers.
