In Australia you are allowed to leave home without parental permission at the age of 16. But i believe that 18 is the mature age (when considered an adult) to leave.

But my opinion is that when a person reaches the age of 18 that's when they have their own right to leave.

If the minor leaves without permission the parents should file an absentee minor report with the local authorities.
