  • Daughter ran away 1,600 miles across country

    My 16 year old daughter ran away. I reported it to the police and after a lot of investigating from my family, the police , friends and myself we found out that she is in another state 1600 miles from home. The local police have been in contact with the police near her but no contact has been made with my daughter. Im worried sick. I understand that the police are doing what they can under the circumstances however I know no one will try harder to bring my child home then I will. Financial hardship is the only reason I’m not able to go look for my girl. At this point I’m desperate and I’m open to anything that would make it possible for me to go find her.
    is there anyone out there who knows of any financial assistance for situations like the one I’m in? Im open to any suggestions or advice! Thank you

    Hi, thank you for reaching out. That sounds like a very scary situation that your daughter ran away and is that far away from home. It sounds very stressful and frustrating wishing that police were doing more to make sure that she is safe and to get her back home. We do not have financial assistance for this unfortunately, but there is an organization called National Center for Missing and Exploited Children: 800-843-5678, website: They may be able to put forth more resources to help. Also once your daughter is located and if she is wanting to go back home to you, we do have a program that might be able to help. To talk more about this, please either call our hotline 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or chat us online at We hope to hear from you soon.
    Be safe,
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
