I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
Each state has their own Department of Child and Family Services. The states can share information, but do not have a synchronized database across all 50 states. Unless the red flag in Utah was created by a FBI criminal record, it's unlikely that California would also have the same red flag - especially if the person has never lived there. It's not impossible, and states can communicate, but this isn't something that's put automatically in a centralized system. Most likely, someone would have to alert Child Protective Services in California if they had reason to believe a parent presented a danger to their child.
