    Hello there,

    Thank you for reaching out to NRS. We are sorry to hear about your situation and hope we can provide some useful information.

    The first way to find out if a youth has been reported as a runaway would be to call the local police using their name; you could look up this number at usacops.com. The second would be to call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, accessible by phone at 1-800-843-5678 and online at missingkids.com.

    We hope this information was helpful and take care.

    Hi parents,
    I caught my daughter, searching on this site, she is 13 year old who got a smart mouth all the time and she has the nerve to cuss me out. She borrowed my phone to do her homework and I'll let her have it for a while, I clean up a little bit and when I checked on her, she was on watching a video. I got upset, we got into an argument, and gave her a warning that she needs to complete her homework. I sat beside her, so I can monitor what she was doing. She tried to read for a while but in a few minutes she started to talk to herself how miserable is her life. I got upset again, and took the phone away and whole drama started. I told her that she won't have access on her phone. She can use the laptop to do her homework and that's it. And now she searches for runaway sites. Where did I go wrong?

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us. We understand your concern for your son, he is lucky to have a parent as supportive as you.

    We are not legal experts here and laws vary from state to state. We do have a legal resources available to us, as well as a database of shelters across the country, if your son needs somewhere safe to stay. If you’re able to give your son our information, we can brain storm options with him and try to keep him safe. There is a parent support hotline, the volunteers who answer the phone are also parents who have gone through similar situations. It may be a good place for you to get the support you need during this time. It’s called Team HOPE (866) 305-4673 (Help Offering Parents Empowerment).

    Again, thank you for reaching out to us and if you need any resources from us do not hesitate to call. Please pass along our information to your son, we are open 24/7.

    Best, NRS

    My son hitchhiked from CT to Oh. He is 17 and will be 18 in February. He graduated high school. My state says he's at the age where I can't stop him from leaving. He has no money and no where to really go in OH. He's not technically a run away or a missing person. What are his rights in OH?

    Thank you for reaching out to us at National Runaway Safeline.

    There are two ways to see if a youth has been reported as a runaway. The first would be to call the local police. The second would be to call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678. There is no guarantee with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The NCMEC would only know if a child is a runaway if someone called them and added the child to their database.

    We hope this information helps. Please feel free to call or chat with us if you have any more questions.

    Stay safe,

    NRS
