I hope the parents of the runaways are held responsible for the costs incurred to search for them. Or better yet, the girls themselves should have to work it off. I'm sure there's a lot of dishes in Juvenile Hall that need washing.

When my son ran away I called 911 and the Sheriff's office came to my house. They did an APB on him and he was found at 3:30 in the morning walking along the highway, he almost made to Yuba City from Magalia. I was very thankful for all of their help! I also told my son what they told me, if he does it again, he's considered chronic and could be placed in foster care. He never did it again!

I'm glad they found your son and it sounds like he had some good parenting long the way.

A police department that works to find missing children? Why is that "crap"

Running away from home (or otherwise disappearing for awhile) is not a crime, plus juvie usually is near capacity. Get real.

Jay...couldn't agree more...but these guys expect everyone else to do their parenting while we pay for it.

Funny...I raised children, none ran away and all love to come home and visit. You won't see any parental responsibility one these boards...the parents just want them hunted down and returned. Complete religious nut jobs...I suspect. Too bad the child killed by her parents on the ridge didn't run...oh wait...the Paradise PD would have returned them...lovely.

Running away is not a crime...just a symptom of a very sick home.

Children who run away are running from something...I suggest you take a look at what is going on in your home before you expect our PD to hunt down your children.

Running away is not a symptom of a sick home necessarily. My parents were great parents, I had an attitude problem and ran away a few times. My parents were horrified and did everything they could to help me. Don't make assumptions about parents of kids who run away. Each case is different.

-Oh really- you sound like you are a know it all with anger issues, GET REAL. Part of the PD's job is to serve and protect, that's why they get paid. I don't think parents of runaways expect the PD to babysit their kids, that's a bit of a stretch. Kids take off for many reasons, doesn't mean the parents are bad or they are expecting the cops to take over as parents. You have some serious issues man

Nothing was mentioned about the young boy who came up missing in Magalia and how they accused his mom then a man in jail for something else and he confessed of kid napping and murdering the young boy. They found his skeletons too... This was years ago.
As for Chuck Fabian, I thought that was pretty common knowledge what happened to him... Everyone whos been around Paradise a long time seem to know...

There is a great deal of difference between missing & taking off on your own. When they get hungry & tired enough they will beat it back to Mommy & Daddy. They will hang out with others till they get tired of it. Wait & see.

for those with legitimate cases of a missing loved one, my prayers are with you.
i hope those who have 'run away' just for kicks, realize how foolish and selfish they are being.

But isn't that part of what the police are paid to do? Find people who have "turned up" missing?
