    Dont want to jump the gun here but how bad can a child of 8 years old be that she continues to run away?! Red flags gere. Also an 8 year old leaving her home alone at 8pm is crazy! I hope she is found unharmed and that htey investigate her situation thourorly!

      Where did you read that she repeatedly runs away? There probably was something that went wrong at home, but don't judge without facts...

    Don't know what happened there, but it should have read "She will be found".
