    RE: My girlfriend is gonna be 17 and wants to runaway

    Hi there,

    Thank you for contacting us here at the National Runaway Safeline (NRS). It sounds like you or your girlfriend may benefit from talking about what has been going on at home. It seems your girlfriend's parents are quite strict to the point that she wants to run away. You seem to care a lot about her but want to know rights and consequences. Since we are not legal experts, we can share that generally if a minor ( under 18 ) leaves home without permission, the minor's parent could file a runaway report where police may bring them back home. Additionally, if a runaway minor stays with someone without parental permission then that individual may be charged with harboring a runaway which is illegal. We are here as a support and not able to give advice or tips on how to run away. We can explore her situation and some options that may be helpful.

    If you or your girlfriend would like to discuss the situation further as well as identify some helpful resources to improve her situation, please consider calling into our crisis line or chatting with us. Our crisis line is free, confidential, and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-786-2929 (

    We wish you well and look forward to your call or chat soon.
