SD16 got a passport and left the country behind everyones back to meet her foreign boyfriend

We havent heard from her in over 24 hours. BM came home from work to find that she was gone. She left a note saying she was going to the UK to meet her boyfriend. 

At first BM thought she must be joking or something but after checking her bank account she found out she wasnt. SD bought a plane ticket and according to the airports it landed safely. However we still havent heard from her. 

We tried getting in contact with the guy and we have heard nothing. We have no idea where she is, if she is safe, or even if he is really who he said he was

She had asked BM to go meet him over the summer but she said no because it was too far and they had no idea who he was. She met this guy through a school project (it was like a penpal type thing) 

BM has been trying to figure out who his parents are or anything about him to make sure DD is okay. It isnt like the police can do anything here or there. 

I havent slept all night. DH and I were up all night just worried. 

We never would have thought she would do something like this. She used just about every single penny she had saved for a car to buy plane tickets. We still arent sure how she got a passport because there is no indication of it in the bank account which means she paid another way. 

BM and DH have left messages and emails on every avenue they can think of to tell her to let them know she is at least safe but they have heard nothing. 

ETA: In the US at 16+ you can get a passport without parental permission

In the States, minors need parents' to get their passport.

Seems like there's a good chance she's a sex slave somewhere.

You haven't even contacted the police?? You missed your chance. The American consulate could have met her at the airport and turned her around.

Holy crap.
My kids asked permission to go to the Mall. They worked hard at school and at part time jobs, saving money for college and didn't even have a serious boyfriend or girlfriend. They actually liked being at home with us until they were graduates and had their own careers.
Your story is so depressing.
I hope it's not true.

BM did as soon as she found out. There is nothing they can do. She was gone before we even knew what was going on

I was thinking the same thing, maybe they aren't from the states?

Wasn't this done before?  Only it was out of canada and the kid could do all this without parental consent due to the age limits up there?

Good point.
I suspect this isn't true.
Anyway I hope it's not true.
