Yes. Once an absentee minor report has been filed the police are obligated to be on the "look out" for the named person. A missing person report is treated differently. In such cases authorities actively search for the named person, with assistance from the media and in some cases that involve a minor an Amber Alert is issued. No they will do nothing at 17 they can leave parents custody if they choose. We have been to all law agencies trting to get my neice back. They tell us because she is 17 and can be tried as an adult there is nothing they can do.
