    Default Legality Surrounding Runaways In Maine

    I have a few questions about run aways. One, if a teen runs away from home but still attends school and the parents go to the school to find them, must the school turn them over? Two, if a friend knows of the location of a run away, is it illegal to with-hold the information from parents or authorities? Three, is it illegal for an adult to agree to house a run away for an indefinite amount of time, being completely aware of the situation?

    These question are all relative to the state of Maine. Thanks in advance.

    Here's an overview of the laws of Maine, pertaining to runaways. As it explains, unlike most states, Maine does not have a "harboring a runaway" law.
