My 18 year old daughter met a 27 year old man with drug and alcohol arrests. He just got off his ankle bracelet. He is also her boss at work. When we found out about his history we asked her not to see him and she agreed. We also found a prepaid phone with his number in it. Well 2 days ago we returned from a trip to find all of her clothes gone. We called and texted her for hours. Finally we called and left her a message that we were going to file a missing person report and report a stolen car (car is in my name). As soon as her heard the message she came home without her clothes. She has been home since. She is still lying about where she was I dont know what to do. We also have 2 young children that also live with us. Should we take the car or tell her to tell us the truth and let her go.

Everyones comments have been a big help. We also found out this man was a federal convict. My husband and her are just alike and stubborn. She seems to be more open to our help but then that's what I thought before. I'm so torn up over everything that is why I am thankful for this forum

Wow! My heart really goes out to you and her. I agree with Roberta that Dad needs to have some loving chats with her. It sounds like a case of rebellion against restrictive parents who need to have laid a firm foundation for her values. If you are consistent with your own values, and teaching them to her by example I think it can have an effect. I can't say she will immediately change, but love her unconditionally anyway. Will she talk it out with you? Are you open to hearing her side of the story? Also, I strongly suggest t hat you read the Bible as truth and find Jesus christ to be all you need. Do this with your daughter if possible. I will be praying for you.
