Father of murdered Escondido teen focuses on search response

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The father of abducted and murdered Escondido teenager Amber Dubois is calling for laws that would enable authorities to respond more quickly when children are snatched off the streets.

Moe Dubois told the San Diego Union-Tribune Tuesday that he is working with lawmakers on a series of measures, mostly focused on search response. The package is expected to be unveiled on May 25.

Dubois also suggests that child sex predators be required to carry driver's licenses identifying them as such.

Fourteen-year-old Amber Dubois was missing for 13 months before her remains were found.

Convicted sex offender John Albert Gardner III pleaded guilty to killing Amber and 17-year-old Chelsea King. He's set to be sentenced next week to life in prison without parole.
