Q: My kid a runaway. White lake PD wont return her even w/my custody papers. Why not ? And how? What do I file next?
I went to white lake multiple times. They claim that no one has custody. Which is untrue. Now my mother is harboring a runaway and white lk PD wont allow me to file charges. Lilly is 13, suicidal and selling pornograph material online. No one cares. How do I stop this ???? I also tried to file a Incorrigible person but Genesee co. ( flint )doesnt do that.....

I wont hire a lawyer. Lilly is like poison to this family. Guess she'll be with my birth giver with bed bugs and no food. Lawyers always want MONEY
There is so much that can be going on with a child custody situation like this that it's really impossible for anyone to give you solid advice without knowledge of all the facts. The police are often reluctant to deal with what can be considered "civil / family" matters. Once the child is rendered safe - which is sounds like they believe your mother to be a safe person, they have or are likely to tell you to deal with it in family court.
You should absolutely get an attorney involved because if you keep going at this how you have been, you could lose custody or become a respondent to a child protective proceeding.
