Hi @Cathy0129 welcome to ReachOut and thank you for sharing. This understandably is an incredibly stressful time for you and I'm sorry to hear that your daughter has been running away and putting herself in unsafe situations. It's great that you've come here for support. How are you looking after yourself throughout all of this? I'm going to tag some of our members who may have been in similar situations or know of someone who has to see if they can provide you with some advice and support @Schooner @taokat @jdbza @sunflowermom @Sister

Thanks for giving us more information - that is a really tough situation, and I can understand that you must be frustrated with how limited your options are.
It sounds like you're in the US - as we are an Australian service, we are limited in what information around services and supports that we can offer you and can unfortunately only offer you some peer support.
As @Lan-RO said - it is important that you are accessing support for yourself, and looking after your own wellbeing while this is happening with your daughter. Who do you have in your support network?

Hi @Cathy0129, what an awfully stressful time for you and I can imagine you must be desperate for help for your daughter.
This must all be taking it's toll on you - are you doing anything to look after you and keep your batteries charged?
I'm sorry we're unable to offer you info as we're in Australia with different resources, laws and processes. I'd suggest looking online to see if there are any US services you can call for further advice on what you can do though.
Let us know how you get on.
It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
