(a) The Department of State Police shall establish and maintain a Statewide Missing Sex Offender Database for the purpose of identifying missing sex offenders and making that information available to the persons specified in Sections 120 and 125 of this Law. The Database shall be created from the Law Enforcement Agencies Data System (LEADS) established under Section 6 of the Intergovernmental Missing Child Recovery Act of 1984. The Department of State Police shall examine its LEADS database for persons registered as sex offenders under the Sex Offender Registration Act and shall identify those who are sex offenders and who have not complied with the provisions of Section 6 of that Act or whose address can not be verified under Section 8-5 of that Act and shall add all the information, including photographs if available, on those missing sex offenders to the Statewide Sex Offender Database.
     (b) The Department of State Police must make the information contained in the Statewide Missing Sex Offender Database accessible on the Internet by means of a hyperlink labeled “Missing Sex Offender Information” on the Department’s World Wide Web home page and on the Attorney General’s I-SORT page. The Department of State Police must update that information as it deems necessary. The Internet page shall also include information that rewards may be available to persons who inform the Department of State Police or a local law enforcement agency of the whereabouts of a missing sex offender.
