    re: My 15 year old baby girl runaway

    Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Switchboard during this difficult time. It sounds like you have a lot going on right now and we’re glad that you have contacted us for further assistance. We are a confidential and anonymous crisis line for youth and their families; you can reach us 24 hours a day at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our online chat services from 4:30 PM-11:30 PM (CST).

    In your email you said that your daughter ran away on Thursday from school. It sounds like you have been doing a lot by contacting the police, her school and her friends. What did the police say when you spoke with them? One of your rights as a parent is to file a runaway report with the police; there are other places that you can contact if they are being less than helpful. Those places are the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Child Find and Operation Lookout; they can all help you make a report and make posters to distribute.

    National Center for Missing and Exploited Children: 1-800-THE-LOST (843-5678.)
    Operation Lookout: 1-800-782-7335
    Child Find: 1-800-426-5678

    There is also an organization called Team H.O.P.E. (Help Offering Parents Empowerment) that may be able to help you out. It is other parents who have been in similar situations and can offer you some support or assistance. Their phone number is 1-866-305-4673.

    If you would like to make some posters before you are able to speak with someone from one of the above agencies, there is a website that may be able to help you do that. It is and they have a template for posters.

    It sounds like you have tried talking with her friends but they aren’t giving you any information about her location; does your daughter have a Facebook page that may be able to provide you with additional information?

    We here at the National Runaway Switchboard have a few different services that may be able to provide you with some assistance. Since we are a confidential and anonymous hotline, we don’t take runaway reports here but we do have a message service where you can leave a message for your daughter. Then, if you give our number to her friends, people at school or other family members, she may call us to pick that up. We can then start a discussion with her to see if she needs any referrals or if she would like to leave a message back to you. Or, if she would like, we can help her make a conference call to you.

    Again, thank you for contacting us and hopefully, we have been able to provide you with further assistance. We wish you the best of luck and look forward to hearing from you.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
