    Thank you for reaching out; we are glad that you did. We are sorry that you are going through this. Of course it's difficult to cope with the worry and depression and more that this situation is causing.
    The hard part is that this is an impersonal public forum so we can only speak generally. If you have already filed a runaway report with your local police, you can have the report with with you when you call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and they will open a file for you and your daughter. You can reach them 24/7 at 1-800-843-5678 or go to NCMEC also has a parent support peer-to-peer hotline for you called Team HOPE (Help Offering Parents Empowerment) where the volunteers are people who have been in exactly your situation and are there to offer their support and strategies to you. You can reach Team HOPE at 1-866-305-4673. They are available M-F 9a-5p, but outside of those times you can leave a message with call back information.
    We hope this begins to help. You are welcome to reach out to our live services 24/7. You can chat us through this website or call our hotline at 1-800-786-2929 (1-800-RUNAWAY)
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
