About Runaway Children:
The following information applies to cases of runaway children, in general. Its inclusion here is merely to inform. Each individual case is different.
More than 90% of children who are reported “missing” are runaways. According to experts, runaway children should not be treated any less seriously than other missing children. Often they are ill-prepared to be away from home and have little food and money. Experts say runaway children are the least likely to make it back home.
