If the case is not of a runaway teenager, it can be up in a matter of hours. Runaways seem to have a week or so delay, although there are exceptions. The database is tied to the NCIC database so cases are pulled as soon as they are removed from there.

Is there anything you remember about this missing child I could look into?
