    Thank you so much for reaching out to us with your story. It sounds like you are having a really tough time with your daughter right now and you mentioned that she has been running away on a regular basis. You also said that she has been staying with an older man but when you have contacted the police not much is done and she continues to run. It’s understandable how frustrating this situation is and it sounds like your main concern is your daughter’s safety and trying to find some resources that may be able to assist. It also sounds like everything that has been going on has really taken a toll on you physically and emotionally. Is there anyone supporting or helping you right now?
