My 18 yr old son, senior in high school, took my car this morning without asking , and then I couldn't find my debit card. I notice on my online bank acct that he must have taken it too and is charging several small amounts like fast food ( 2 X) and gas station ( 3 X) and other misc. adding up to about 60.00. He has stayed gone all day which is unusual. He has borrowed the car before for short visits to his friends and has usually asked first. But has taken it without asking and I told him to always ask. He has also taken my debit card out of my purse before and used it to buy cigarettes (maybe 5.00 at most) which I told him was very unacceptable and caused me to lose trust. I started hiding my purse just in case. I called and cancelled my card. I'm so mad I want to wring his neck . What would you do?Answer Question

So their is no way of contacting him? Have you ever told him you will call the police on him if he does this stuff again?
I say wait. If you can call around to his friends if you can and leave messages with them. "Get your ass home". If he does not come home by morning. Call the police. He is an adult. He needs to start acting like one.
