Can the parents do something if the 17 yr old legal age runaway is going through abuse?

If a minor is reported as a runaway the police will look after her and the people protecting and helping her will get into trouble for harboring a runaway. You say she's of legal age and with that I assume you mean moving out and that you then have given her permission. A minor can not move out without parental permission unless she is emancipated by the court. Legal age is 18 and you will be responsible for her until she is 18. Even if she move out. So unless she is emancipated by the court she is still a minor and abuse should be reported to the CPS and police. If you can't not go near they can ask her if she wants out.
