    MISSING CHILDREN

    Missing juveniles are classified as voluntary, abducted by parent, abducted by stranger, or cause of disappearance unknown.

    A Runaway child is considered by to be a voluntary missing juvenile.

    A runaway child is always 'at risk" and demands prompt attention by law enforcement. Therefore, Police are empowered under the law to take a runaway child into "protective custody," but the child CANNOT be placed into a lockdown facility or juvenile detention center. Being a runaway is NOT A CRIME - only a "status offense."

    When police find a runaway child, they can take the child home or to the nearest runaway youth shelter. The runaway shelter in Clark County is WESTCARE YOUTH CENTER at 401 S. Martin Luther King Boulevard (385-2020).

    Police CANNOT make a "forced entry' into a private home to recover a runaway child, unless the child is in danger or life-threatening situation. Police, however, can assist parents when a runaway is uncooperative or there is a risk of violence.

    that is straight from a lasvegas juvenile detective. i really need some guidance here i know that he wants to get emancipated here i don't know any laws about if you can help please contact me at [email protected] he has only got till 10/19/06 then he is 18.

    Even if he was eligible to be emancipated (which he's NOT), it doubt it would be finalized before he turns 18.

    Have the police charged you with anything yet? Transporting a minor across state lines without the written permission of the parents is a FEDERAL FELONY.

    He is probably being charged with something along the lines of a civil disobedience crime.

He has a 15 yr old sister who had runaway numerous times, eventually their other gma,which is their moms mom, took custody of her. . before i came into his life he had a serious depression problem and he cut himself on his inner arms, from his wrists to his elbows, . he would never report his gma for mental abuse because his grandfather was there and very sick. His grandfather went into the hospital sometime before last october. My bf left home and came to georgia on october 27, 2005. His gma reported him as a runaway. My mom told him he needed to call his grandparents and let them know he was alright. He said he would like to let his grandfather know but he didnt want to even talk to her.I agreed with my mom, so he called and talked with his grandfather and her a couple of times.Mid January he called, and she said his grandfather was he really sick and they didn't think that he was going to make it. So he decided to go home, he ask his gma if I could come back with him and she said yes and that I could stay in the home with them. We had a flight booked for 1/28/06-being saturday. On 1/26/06-being thursday, he called home to check on his grandfather only to be told by her, that his grandfather had passed away the night before,being- 1/25/06 wednesday. Naturally this upset my bf very badly.We got on flight as planned, we arrived in neveda the same day, being 1/28/06. I lived in the home with my bf and his gma from 1/28/06 till 4/25/06. She did nothing but cuss him and talk down to him and make his life terrible. She had never met me till then and has never met my family as of today but she talked about my family like they were trash called me all kinds of things. She told him he was nothing but a problem to her and that he was nothing but a stubborn ******* like his grandfather. She constantly screamed about anything and everything she could think of. On 4/25/06 we left and came back to georgia, again she reported him as a runaway. An officer came and picked him up on 5/01/06. He is in our ydc-youth detention center as i speak. i don't know the laws of georgia nor do i know the laws of neveda but i do know this

        as far as him proving that she causes emotional abuse what does he need to do
        she comes in the house yelling i quote "my ***** is tired to his name "
        she tell him i quote "you are nothing but a problem, you make me wanna go stand in the road and let a car hit me
        you are just like your father and mother you have no hope in life"
        my bf has went through some terrible things and he refuses to stay there their neighbors helped us leave with out her knowing and told me that he was better off away from her his teachers from high school told him he was better off since he met me. he has gained weight and he doesn't wear the solid black all the time anymore all his friends and friends parents said that he is doing alot better and stuff i just don't know what he should try to do.

        the whole time i was there she called me a fat lazy ***** and told me that my mother was nothing but a drug ***** my gma was nothing but a stupid ***** talked horrible about my family and then slapped the covers out of my hands while i was trying to fold them for her she told me and my bf needed to be with some one who loved him would yell all these things about me to him right infront of me i never raised my voice at her nor said anything but yes mam and no mam. they fight like crazy. she makes him feel like his grandfathers death was his fault. tells him that nothing but his d*ck and my p*ssy works in that house and that he should just go f*** me, it was terrible

        his younger sister is 15 and living with a 35 year old guy and His gma doesn't do much of anything and she used to yell sexual obesinities at her when she was 8 yrs old she would tell her that she liked nothing but black d*ck between her legs and then one time she won 3rd place at the science fair and she can home 30 min late and she accused her of being out sleeping with any and all black guys she could name

        these kids have been though a lot from what i was told their dad is in prison for rape and their mom is out on the streets with drugs.
        I was just reading my daughters post and thought that I would correct her some.

          You're uncle will have no pull if and when it is reported to the FEDERAL authorities. They have a full 2 years to charge you, so don't get to comfy thinking you are off the hook.

              No.

              You would be labeled a runaway and returned to your parents. Your friend that is harboring you as a runaway could be charged with interference of custody.

              I am assuming that this friend isn't a love interest.
              Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

              I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

              Any statements I make are based purely upon my personal experiences and research which may or may not be accurate in a court of law.

                no hes jsut a friend its not a love interest, and a couple years ago my brother at the time was 17 now is 21 but when he was 17 he was going to go to new york with some girl he meet on the internet and my mom flipped out called the cops and they said they couldnt do anything that he was allowed to leave, so im wondering if its the same situation.i also dont understand why you can get pulled over and say u have got something illeagl in your car you considered an adult and they can arrest you when your 17 but your not an adult when it comes to something like this .

                  If I am not mistaken, the law in GA has changed recently, which would explain why your brother was allowed to leave; he was still under the old law.
                  The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
