Law & Legal Issues

If you are 18 years old and leave the home without your parent's consent can they call 911 and will the police search for you?

The answer to this question is complicated. How did the parents

call into the police? As a health and welfare check? If this is how

they called it in, then yes they can go look for you. They would on

anyone of any age in VA. If they called you in for a missing

person, no they have to wait the time limit for that. I believe its

24 hours. If they called you in as a runaway and you are 18 they

would not treat this as a runaway situation unless you were

mentally handicapped.
