Okay, breathe.
Can you ring her a cab and let her go to her gran's/aunt's/family member's?
Then get them to ring you once she is settled, vented, and asleep.
Let it blow over til the morning?

Has she said where she's going? If it's to a friend's or somewhere else safe, maybe talking when you're all calm tomorrow would be a plan. Depends on age and other factors of course.

Will she go to a friend or relative?

StupidBloodyKindle Fri 19-Jun-15 23:31:36

Well, she is 18.
Does she have a bkyfriend or mate, whose couch she will sleep on?
Cashcard/access to any cash?

Let her.

Trust me when you stop trying to make her stay she'll come back on her own or at least your relationship will improve.

But I left home at 16 so can only draw on my own experience at 18 she's old enough to leave if she wants.. You can't call it running away from home I don't think.

If she has nowhere to go (and I'll bet she'll have a bed for tonight) she'll be back when things calm down.

You can't do anything right now. Either check with her fb mates etc, alert any family members, text her. Unless there are outside agencies involved,not sure what police could do...but alerting them to what she is wearing on 101 number might help if you think she will be in danger/sleeping rough. Where has she ended up before?

look try not to worry too much - any idea where she will go?

It is not really 'running away' when she is 18.

despomum41 Fri 19-Jun-15 23:46:20

she has ended at her boyfriends house before, im hoping she will go to her father`s house whom she bumped into today after a good few years and now he is father of the year thats what the arguement was about

do you have his phone number?

despomum41 Fri 19-Jun-15 23:56:38

unfortunately i was never given his number because he has mental health problems and the last time i spoke to him which was yesterday he was abusive when i asked where my dd was as he had answered her phone

SunnyBaudelaire Fri 19-Jun-15 23:59:29

despomum41 Sat 20-Jun-15 00:03:32
