CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A Kansas mother who struggled with a cellphone company to provide call location information when her daughter went missing is urging Nevada lawmakers to pass a bill requiring such information be given to police agencies in emergencies.

There was no opposition Monday to SB268 during testimony before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Labor and Energy.

Missy Smith of Overland Park, Kan., told committee members of her frustration and anger when her daughter, Kelsey, was taken from a store on June 2, 2007, just nine days after graduating from high school.

The 18-year-old's body was discovered four days later. Her family believes she might have been found sooner, possibly alive, if her cellphone location was tracked and made available to police.

Similar laws have been adopted in nine states.
