I was that teen an I was pretty good I just clashed with my mom. She 16 I would let Her stay. I realized pretty quick my nana wasn't as fun when I was living with her.
What did she get mad over?

 she hurt her self at school called me i told her to go to nurse she said she was ok but when she got home that evening she was hurting and i would not take her to hospital/clinic told her to take a hot bath she would be alright and we had words,

When i went to look for her she had left the house i went to parent she was there, i had words with her and my mother and now it is a big family mess and she will not come home.

She's 16. Depending on what state your in she legally can leave. But you CAN call the police on your parents and DD breaking in - but I wouldn't go that way.

I would be pissed.... at my kid and my parents!!     I would tell the Grandparents, that  they overstepped Big Time.    If they think they can raise her better, than they can buy her new clothes and stay out of your house... because next time, you will call the police and charge them with breaking and entering.

Why did you refuse to take her to the hospital/clinic?  Did she go to grandparents so that she could get the medical help she thought she needed?  I honestly thinkyou need to sit down with DD and grandparents explain your postition and ask your DD to come back home.

 I would never refuse my child medical treatment if they felt they needed it so I can see why she left and why your parents took her in sorry I am no help.

Call the police.   She is a minor, and you are the custodial parent.   Her grandparents are ASSHOLES for taking her in against your wishes.

 You are the parent.Grandparents need to be the grandparents not the parents.
