there's nothing we can do.

right before Halloween, my dd17 told me she was moving out because her bf19 from Hawaii moved here except a little more up north. her father is pissed, he has called the cops but because she left on her own there is nothing to be done. he wants me to go drag her home. she enrolled herself in school, she has a job already, and according to my insurance, she got an IUD the day after moving up there. I get the upset, I'm upset too but acting like a raging loon is only going to push her farther away.

She's a minor, she can't legally leave on her own.

In some states they can leave at 16 and not be taken back.

Op, at least she's being safe about sex and is still in school.

no, they cant. she left willingly. they can arrest parents for kicking a minor out but not a minor leaving willingly.
