Parent Category: Law & Legal Issues
People go missing every day. Sometimes it can be someone under mental distress that has wandered away from home, and other times they are forced away from their friends and families against their will. In many instances, it is unknown what may have happened to the person. There are several large organizations dedicated to finding these children and adults.
Impressment or Press gang. Groups of men connected with the navy  would befriend a young man in a tavern, get him drunk and when he  woke up he would find himself aboard ship.
People don't really pay attention to their surroundings. They  usually pay attention to their electronic devices.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an  inherited disease that causes the body to produce mucus that's  extremely thick and sticky. The mucus is thicker than normal  because CF affects cells in the  epithelium(pronounced: eh-puh-THEE-lee-um), the layer of  cells that lines the passages in the body's...
 they lose heat  more rapidly since they have a higher surface area-to-volume ratio,  and  they are more  likely to be in contact with colder surfaces than other parts of  the body.    If the eyes are not protected with goggles in high wind chill  conditions, the corneas of the eyes may...
If you are a minor, you could be made a court of law if your  parents can't cope, or they request the courts and social services  help. If you are 16 or over, it is different and, as a young adult,  you are treated as such and able to leave home without your parents  permission. Over 18, you can...

Quite mentally, sometimes it makes people stronger, but it can alsomess with people's emotions, causing distrust, even in peoplethey're close to, parents, loved-ones.
You can move out if your parents house whenever you please but you have to have their permission and somewhere to go. Unless you are 18 or over.
yes it could well be a crime. you are stealing from the government. but i doubt it would be considered kidnapping when the child hasn't even reached zygote form. so you will just be stealing.
Yes, but sometimes it depends on why they ran away.

File for missing person. If your name is also on title then file for theft, if not then that cannot be helped. You can apply with the bank that your name be removed from the loan which most likely will cause you to pay a certain amount or you wont even be able to have it removed.
As a layman I can't say this with authority, but it seems like if you transport someone considered a minor in your state across state lines, that might violate the Mann Act of 1910 which was designed to stop prostitution, but has been liberally used over the years to dictate morality at the federal...
it is illegal to runaway from home no matter what state u are in, if you are under 18
A theory that one cannot deny is the POSSIBILITY that either Charles himself, a family member, or a member of the staff ( like babysitters, household help) might have been responsible for this horrible crime. Knowing he was such as popular (Big Man) in the media, no one would ever dream of charging...
Often times, no. If you go into hiding, the authorities need to be made aware of the situation and they can issue protective orders, as well as refer you to organizations that help in relocation.
If you're in the US... The fact that you tell your parents where you're going does not make it legal. You're still absent from home without their permission. The police would pick you up, bring you back home, and might even have a nice little chat with the person who's home who's visited without...
No. The only way you can get in trouble is she was staying with you. If you are no where around her then you should be fine. Beware though, the parents can get the courts to have a order for your phone records and if they find out you have been talking to her and not telling them any information,...
  How old are you? If you are of legal age to get married in your state without parental consent then no, you are not a runaway. If you're too young to get married without parent's consent, then yes, you are a runaway and what's more, you aren't legally married. Google your state's law on "age...
The total number of child abductions per year remains relatively stable by FBI reports. While there may be a slight increase in the number of family related abductions, the number of stranger abductions stays at about 100-200 per year in the US. The exact number is difficult to determine, because...

Yes I believe under Florida State law the officer can compel the runaway, using force where necessary, to ensure the runaway is returned to their place of abode.Failing that they can if required shoot the runaway dead and return the rotting corpse to the parents driveway for decent burial.
That depends on the kidnapper's demands! However, police departments work very hard to make sure that a kidnapper never gets the money, or if the kidnapper does take control of the money that he cannot spend it. For example, the police add dye packs that explode over the money, making the bills...
Appropriately enough, kidnapper seems to have originated among those who perpetrate this crime.

Kid, which still has an informal air, was considered low slang when kidnapper was formed,...

This is a very tough situation at best. My heart goes out to you. As for your question, the age difference becomes more of a problem when your son turns 18. If his girlfriend's mother wants to get nasty, she could have your son (when he turns 18) prosecuted for statutory rape, depending on the laws...
Well 1 he didn't kidnap her, if they had she would have been tied up she stayed there on her own free will. Surprisingly they didn't harm her or use her as a ransom or hostage.
Yes because you are not a legal adult
Yes. That may be considered parental kidnapping. The father may find himself in a peck of trouble if he violates an outstanding custody order. In the end he may lose his visitation rights. It's a bad idea that will cause more harm than good. A child need a stable home. If the mother have provided...
if the mom is there, no, even if the mom isn't it's still not kidnapping, kidnapping is when somebody takes the child and doesn't give it back, that's just getting a ride

This could mean that you worry about your child. I find that my dreams often involve things I am afraid of.
Anywhere from 5 to 25 years in prison for kidnap, depending on the degree of kidnapping

  The age of majority is 18. Until then, the person responsible for them can report them as a runaway.
Shanghaiing refers to the practice of kidnapping people to serve as  sailors.
It's time you were honest with yourself and figured out why your daughter keeps running away. Kids don't run away for no reason. Until you fix what is wrong in your own life your daughter will continue to run away no matter how young she is and there is nothing you can do about it. The police can...
too many to be counted, this is the top of the iceberg, because we only know about the ones you hear about through the news.
Teens sometimes run away because they are either frustrated or jsut need to be alone for a while. Just give them time and they will come to their senses and come home. ♥    -teens runaway because they want to explore the world by themselves, or their being mistreated at home, there are many...
Being a guardian for someone is basically their legal representative, UNLESS these guardianship documents allow for actual physical custody. If that is the case, and the documents is notarized, given by the parent who has official custody, then it should be fine. But they need to file that document...
taking someone (sometimes by force), illegally or without permission
Yes BUT if there parents dont report them themselves than they can get away with it
That depends on why you ran away in the first place. But in general, yes, it would probably be better if you told them you're fine and why you did that.

Yes, as she is a minor - but it depends on whether she gave permission
Summit is a good setting because the police force there (if there even is any) wouldn't be able to hurt the kidnappers at all.
  Answer   I believe that in a lot of States, one has to be at least 16 before you can do anything legally, but to find out for sure, there must be a Children's Aid Society not far from where you live or on the net. Why not contact them and see what your legal rights are.   I'm from Canada...
