The conservator shall within 60 days after appointment make a written report to the
probate court setting forth the condition of the estate of the missing individual,
together with a schedule of any debts that may be owed by the missing person, an estimate
of the income from the estate and the expenses necessary to its preservation, a statement
showing the names, ages, and condition of any individuals who may have been dependent
on the missing person for support, and a recommendation as to how the estate should
be distributed. The court, after considering the report and making any further investigation the
court may deem necessary, shall make such order as will most effectively tend to provide
for the support of any individuals who may have been dependent upon the missing individual
for support and for the handling of the property, including any business or business
interest, owned by the missing person. The order may provide for the payment of those debts of the missing person as the
court deems just and proper. An order of an appropriate court may allow the conservator to engage in such estate
planning dispositions of the missing person's property as are authorized by Code Sections 29-3-36 and 29-5-36. The order may be modified in the discretion of the court at any time upon petition
by the conservator, any individual dependent upon the missing individual for support,
the guardian of any such individual, or any person having an interest in the property
or in any business of the missing individual.
