Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter says he will push for legislation next year that requires local law enforcement to enter data from cold cases involving missing or unidentified persons into a national database.

Hunter announced his plan Thursday, flanked by family members of a missing Tulsa woman whose case was solved when a relative linked her disappearance to the discovery of a body in Muskogee County.

Vicki Curl's mother, Francine Frost, disappeared from a Tulsa grocery store in 1981 and remained listed as a missing person for more than 30 years.

The bill would require local law enforcement to enter details of missing persons or unidentified remains into the publicly accessible NamUs database .

Hunter is seeking the Republican nomination in an August 28 primary runoff against Tulsa attorney Gentner Drummond.
