movies where someone is told to wait 24hrs to file a missing persons report

I'm looking for specific movies where someone is told they have to wait 24 hours to file a missing persons report. (This is not true, and there are many many places that will tell you it's not true "despite what you see in the movies," but it's surprisingly difficult to find those movies.)
