Assuming they are back now, need to try and talk to him/her. Yes needs to be consequences but from experience that doesnt solve everything need to try and talk as well.

You didn't call the police when you discovered her missing?

If it were my kid, they'd be so grounded, they'd be climbing back through the middle of the earth from Australia to the US. The privileges would be non existent, and the kid wouldn't leave either my supervision or that of the school district's.

And that's just the start. My kid would also be wearing a leash in public for at least a week, and when asked, I'd reply: "She decided to leave my home without permission, so she's under full restriction until she learns the limits again"

That being said, do you have consequences in place for when your children disregard house rules? If so, enforce them. If not, then you'd better get something set up, and let your kids know that the next time there will be proverbial hell to pay.

Scary! Do you mean out, like you don't know where he/she is? If he/she is a runaway you can call the police.
