How long do you have to wait till you can report a 17 year old runaway?

Well, the laws of "runaways" are a little hazy to some. If the individual is seventeen years of age he/she is not considered a runaway, they are considered missing. Any individual under the age of seventeen could be repoted as a runaway as soon as the act occurs. But it is not a crime to be missing, you would only be able to call the local police department to report the individual missing, but no legal consequences will surface from this because the courts veiw a seventeen year old as legal in legal matters. You shouldn't have to wait at all. Until the minor reaches the age of 18, they are considered to be under their parent's care. Some states have different laws about how 17 year olds are treated, and the police have different policies about what happens if they find a 17 year old.
