of a current picture and information about a child who is missing from a foster care
or out-of-home placement to appropriate third parties, which may include law enforcement
agencies or persons engaged in procuring, gathering, writing, editing, or disseminating
news or other information to the public. Any information released to a third party under this section shall be subject to
state and federal confidentiality laws and shall not include that the child is under
the care, custody, or supervision of the department or under the supervision of probation. Such dissemination by probation shall be authorized by an order of a judge or court.
