If a person goes missing and a minor is beleived to have information pertaining to the whereabouts of said missing person, do they need to have a parent or gaurdian present if police wish to question them?

It doesn't sound like the minor child was a suspect in a crime so there is no specific requirement that a parent or guardian be present. If the child is under 14, the police are generally required to have a parent or guardian present before questioning the child.
