but you are legally responsible for her. Someone I know recently had big problems with their 15 yr old daughter whom as I am sure everyone is aware is still his legal responsibility. The child decided to do a runner from the family home and went to live with whoever would offer her a bed. After a few nights of frantic phone calls to friends / relatives trying to locate his daughter the person in question called the police and reported her missing. To his amazement the police telephoned several hours later stating that they had found the child and could confirm that she was safe and well. Needless to say the parent grabbed the car keys in anticipation of a swift reunion until they were told - we are sorry, but we cannot tell you where your child is as the child has a right to privacy Has anyone ever heard anything so mad?
