My son was running away on a weekly bases and I would search for him for hours on end. I would stop by every one of his friends houses and they would say the have not seen him. The last time he went missing I went to my neighbors house to ask if he was there or if they have seen him. they said they have not seen him. When in truth he was at that house the entire time. this has happened several times with other people and families who failed to notify me knowing that I was lookiing for him.
