Usually 24 - 48 hours. Marcy Another factor that is the actual age of the minor, most states including Washington cannot delay an absentee minor report but must, by law begin the search process as soon as the information has been validated. The reason for the difference in reportage of an adult and a minor is due to the AMBER ALERT law and similar statutes that every state has established pertaining to underaged missing persons.
A runaway or absentee minor report is what a person files if a minor in their custody has run away or is missing. There are various reasons parents do not file a report a runaway that include not wanting to involve police involvement, they know where the minor is, or they do not think police involvement is needed.
A 17-year-old is a minor and therefore does not get to choose where they live. Ever heard of the Becca Law? It was passed in WA after a teenage runaway was murdered. It basically gave parents more 'power' in dealing with runaway/disobedient/truant children. You would be considered a runaway and you would be returned home.
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.
If the parents do not know if his whereabouts they can file a missing persons report which could be classified as a juvenile runaway. If the parents are aware of the location of the minor, the person would be classified as an absentee minor and the parents can request the assistance of authorities to have their child returned to their custody. The action that police or other authorities take depends upon the assessment of the case and its individual circumstances. For example, a minor whose whereabouts are known is believed to be in an unsafe environment
If you are reported as a "missing person" and people are assisting you, knowing that your parents do not know where you're at, they can be criminally prosecuted on a number of charges. Contributing to the delinquency of a minor is one, interfering with authorities (if a report has been filed with the police), obstruction of justice, and so on and so on.
