Because the legal age of majority in Indiana is 18, the parents could insist the young woman to return home; (some states allow the parent(s) to use physical force as long as it is not excessive). If the parents wish, they may report the minor as a runaway or absentee minor depending upon how the definition of state laws pertaining to the issue and request assistance of juvenile authorities. Law officers have the legal right to take a minor into custody for whatever reason might apply whether or not the parent(s) or legal guardian have made a report.
