It could happen. That is difficult, you can be brought back to your parents at any time, as you are considered a child being only 16, the police could pick you up and take you back home and yes they could charge him with Harboring a Runaway Child (Penal Code) at their and your parents discretion, but I am not sure about kidnapping. I would say wait until you turn 18, as then no one can stop you being with him! Also if he loves you he wont mind waiting a couple of years, show your maturity now, and when you turn 18 your parents may be happier to actually help you two move in together!! * The 19-year old is an adult and could be charged with several criminal offenses pertaining to N.C. "crimes against underage persons" statutes. However, kidnapping would not apply such charges relate to the forceful, unlawful removing and/or detainment of a person or persons against their will.

Yes. If the parents decide to press kidnapping charges, the 18 year old could be charged. Any adult (18+) who "runs away" with a child (under 18) could technically be charged with kidnapping. However, if it came to court, I think it's unlikely. It would depend on the state and the judge.
