We’re no legal experts, but if you were to runaway you’re legal guardian can file a runaway report with the authorities. Whoever you end up staying with my face some consequences for harboring a runaway. If you want to know more precise charges you can contact your local non-emergency number, and inquire anonymously about the consequences of running away.

    We care about your safety, and if you’re experiencing any type of abuse you may reach out to the National Child Abuse hotline at 1800) 422-4453.
