  • 13 year old daughter ran away

    I have a 13 year old daughter who was living in a Children's Home here in my city. This is the 2nd time she has ran away but it has been 2 days and not a word...The first time she ran she was with a boy from school and admitted to having sex for the 1st time. I am terrified of what she could be doing. She is with another girl from the home and I just don't know where to start. I have called all her friends and looked everywhere I can think of.
    Her behavior is what caused us to seek placement and she had been doing well until now. It was very spontaneous they left with nothing but the clothes on their backs. I am terrified. Please someone let me know what else I can do to find her. The police were notified within 20 minutes and also told about where she was previously found.
    I feel helpless , like I am not doing enough.
