In my state (Louisiana), once you are 17 you are no longer considered a juvenile, and can no longer be listed as a runaway. Basically, you can leave and the cops can't do anything about it. However, you still can't sign a lease or open a bank account, which severely limits your independence. I'm in the same situation, and the police basically told my father that they couldn't do anything about it.

The laws vary by state, so the best thing you can do is call your state police department and ask. You can also check their website for information about it. Just make sure you contact the STATE police and not local, because they can give you the best answer.
