The legal age of majority in Missouri is 18, although the age stated in the Missouri Juvenile Code creates some confusion for both parents and children. The parent(s) have the option of filing a report with authorities listing the minor as a runaway or an absentee minor. A "runaway" is defined as a minor child whose location is unknown, an "absentee minor" is a child who has left the family home against parental wishes, but the parents know or believe they know where the child is residing. The cases are treated in different ways according to individual circumstances, contacting your local police department should obtain more specific information relating to your personal situation.
