*MIK*) AN ONLINE PETITION TO CHANGE STATE LAWS NOW HAS THOUSANDS OF SIGNATURES. FAMILY OF 8-MONTH OLD AMIAH ROBERTSON WANT HARSHER PENALTIES FOR PEOPLE WHO DON’T IMMEDIATELY REPORT MISSING CHILDREN. *BROOK*) AMIAH DISAPPEARED IN MARCH. SHE WASN’T REPORTED MISSING UNTIL A*WEEK AFTER SHE WAS LAST SEEN. NEWS 8’S JENNY DREASLER IS OUTSIDE IMPD HEADQUARTERS.. JENNY — YOU TALKED TO THE BABY’S FAMILY… IT’S BEEN MORE THAN FIVE MONTHS SINCE 8-MONTH OLD AMIAH ROBERTSON DISAPPEARED… THE INFANT’S DISAPPEARANCE LAUNCHED A HIGHLY PUBLICIZED IMPD HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION. *BROOK*) AMIAH WASN’T REPORTED MISSING UNTIL A*WEEK AFTER SHE WAS LAST SEEN. TONIGHT…FAMILY MEMBERS OF AMIAH ARE PUSHING FOR NEW LEGISLATION THAT AIMS TO TIGHTEN UP THE LAWS FOR PEOPLE WHO DON’T IMMEDIATELY REPORT MISSING CHILDREN TO POLICE. *TAKE BOXES – DB BIG SMAL*) NEWS 8’S JENNY DREASLER IS LIVE FOR US OUTSIDE IMPD.. JENNY… *JENN*) MIKE AND BROOKE — I SPOKE TO THE SISTER OF AMIAH’S POTENTIAL FATHER… SHE’S THE ONE WHO STARTED THE ONLINE PETITION.. AND SAYS SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE. * JENNY DREASLER, REPORTIN*) ((PATRICIA TURNER, AMIAH’S POTENTIAL AUNT/: “IF SOMEONE WOULD HAVE REPORTED HER MISSING WITHIN THE FIRST DAY, THE WHOLE OUTCOME COULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT.”)):06 THAT’S EXACTLY WHY PATRICIA TURNER… AMIAH’S POTENTIAL AUNT CREATED THIS ONLINE PETITION ON CHANGE DOT ORG… ASKING FOR INDIANA LAWMAKERS TO CREATE A NEW BILL … CALLED AMIAH’S LAW. ((PATRICIA TURNER/: “IT’S HEARTBREAKING TO NOW KNOW WHERE SHE’S AT, WHAT HAPPENED TO HER, WHAT THE TRUE STORY IS. NOBODY IS COMING STRAIGHT AND WE NEED ANSWERS.”)):12 IMPD SAYS BABY AMIAH WAS LAST SEEN ON MARCH 9TH IN THE CARE OF ROBERT LYONS. LYONS WAS THE BOYFRIEND OF AMIAH’S MOTHER — AMBER ROBERTSON. AMBER IS NOT CONSIDERED A SUSPECT IN THE CASE. LYONS*IS. HE HAS NOT BEEN ARRESTED OR CHARGED. ((PATRICIA TURNER, POTENTIAL AUNT/: “WE HAD SO MUCH TIME LOST, A WEEK, WEEK AND A HALF FROM THE LAST TIME AMIAH WAS SEEN UNTIL SHE WAS REPORTED MISSING.”)):06 RIGHT NOW.. THERE IS NOT A LAW IN INDIANA THAT PENALIZES PARENTS OR GUARDIANS FOR WAITING TO REPORT A CHILD MISSING. TURNER’S ONLINE PETITION TO CHANGE THAT.. HAS GOTTEN 32- HUNDRED SIGNATURES SINCE IT STARTED IN MAY. TURNER HOPES IF THE LEGISLATION IS PASSED… IT WILL NOT ONLY LEAD TO ANSWERS FOR AMIAH.. BUT PREVENT ANOTHER FAMILY FROM GOING THROUGH THIS TOO. ((PATRICIA TURNER, POTENTIAL AUNT/: “WE NEED TO PROTECT NOT ONLY OUR CHILDREN, BUT OTHER CHILDREN THAT WE SEE. IT’S SAD. YOU SHOULDN’T BE TOLD TO REPORT YOUR CHILD MISSING. IF THEY’RE MISSING, YOU REPORT THEM MISSING IMMEDIATELY.”:19)):19 *JENN*) IF YOU’D LIKE TO READ THE PETITION.. WE’LL HAVE A LINK ON OUR WEBSITE AT WISHTV DOT COM I REACHED OUT TO IMPD –THERE ARE NO NEW UPDATES IN THE SEARCH FOR AMIAH… LYONS.. BY THE WAY.. IS DUE IN COURT TOMORROW MORNING FOR A SEPARATE FORGERY CHARGE. LIVE DOWNTOWN.. JENNY
