C-05 - Missing From Care

Missing from Care pertains to youth who are in the department’s custody and have run away from their placement. This workshop will discuss the steps to take when a youth runs from care. This will include policy, how to coordinate with law enforcement, missing from care locators, the attorney general’s office, courts and other community providers. The workshop will also go over tools to help youth from running, warning signs to look for, as well as screening and working with youth who have been, or are at risk for being commercially sexually exploited.

The training will be a panel style forum with panel participants being Missing from Care Locators from each Region as well as a Regional Missing from Care Lead.
