    16 years old: Interview with social services, if there’s no other issues then let her go and live elsewhere if she’s so keen. Waste of time and resources. (And column inches.)

    There’s really no mistreatment going on. You might want to look at the individuals who frequently go missing and their respective backgrounds. There, you’ll see cause and effect.

    There is something terribly wrong here. This child is running from something or someone. I cannot understand why this problem is being ignored and swept under the rug. Try talking and listening to her and lets get to the root of the problem. I pray that she finds peace and safety from whatever she is running from

      Maybe instead of running from something she might be running to someone. There is no institution in the world that is perfect or that everyone is completely happy about. The very nature of these places defies that. Perhaps at the outset they were issues that would cause the residents to become unhappy with, for example decipline, rules. With all the publicity this home has been getting in the recent pass they would be stupid not to be proving due care and attention Just maybe these runaways are non- compliant and refuses to avail themselves of the decipline and type of care there. Please remember they were at risk from the beginning or else they would not be there. Unless they want to avail themselves and benefit from being there no one else has the power to make it happen.

    There is something wrong here. Has anyone looked into the home she is living in? These things re-occur when there is mistreatment.

        But so happy for your dimes to be spent lining a rich persons pocket, wow!….when you are sick with no pension, no job and lose your house, I hereby now vow not to let any of my dimes help you out. Sick selfish person. She’s a child, a child that somehow somewhere has been failed by either her parents, the education system, society at large, including you and many people like you. and you wonder why these kids are running away, lord help us all when society is filled with the majority of people who think like you.
