OKLAHOMA CITY -- DHS will now be able to track deadbeat parents with a "most wanted" list.

Governor Mary Fallin signed a bill into law Friday that authorizes DHS to release a list of delinquent or missing parents who owe child support.

The "most wanted" lists may include the parent's name, picture, last known address and amount of child support owed.

The governor says no one should be able to skip out on child support payments and this new law will help ensure that.

Senate Bill 576 was authored by Rep. Jason Nelson and Sen. Patrick Anderson.
