If a individual is married and is 20 years old, would Suzannes

This answer was rated:

If a individual is married and is 20 years old, would Suzanne's Law still apply or does that marriage place the individual on the same status as a 21 year old.

Suzanne's law is a Federal law that requires if a person between the ages of 18 and 21 are missing that the state from which they are reported as a missing person use the Amber Alert system and to notify the National Crime Information Center.

Therefore, being married or not would not be a factor, if the person is under age 22 and reported missing.

With that being said, if the person has been reported missing then the Suzanne Law would apply even if they are married. The reported "missing person" would need to come forward and show they are in good condition, not in harm's way and married on their own free will and not a missing person.
