When a child (person under the age of 18-years-old) goes missing, an adult (defined by reaching the age of 18-years-old) can not be exempt from a polygraph examination by law enforcement. The polygraph examination will be used strictly as a tool for law enforcement during an investigation, and the results are not admissible in court.

Polygraph examinations are not admissible in court because they're not full proof, but they can be a useful tool in helping locate a missing child. For example, direct questions to a person of interest can help determine whether or not a person was involved in a disappearance of a child; what happened to a specific child; and may help determine a location for a child. Approximately 3500 people go missing every day in the United States. Many of those people are children that are never found. The rights of an innocent child should supersede the rights of anyone who may seek to victimize a child. Polygraph examinations do not hurt anyone. They simply measure heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rate changes during an exam.
