If you have a runaway child, you are probably feeling utterly overwhelmed. In the case of runaway children, police action is limited in many circumstances. Your child’s situation may prevent the police from devoting their full attention to the case, especially if your child is over 12 and they think that your child is not in danger.
If you have a runaway child, there are options available to you.
Even if the police are not able to devote their full resources to your child, you can hire a trusted private investigator. Situations where the police may not make your child a priority:
- Your child is over 12 years of age.
- Your child has not been threatened and shows no signs of being suicidal.
- Your child does not have special needs that make him or her especially vulnerable.
- Your child appears to be continuing contact with friends or other family members, whether in person or through electronic devices.
The police are overwhelmed and understaffed. If they do not believe that your child is serious danger, they may not explore all the avenues necessary to find your child.
