Most children who run away from home do so because of neglect, abuse, family conflict or drug and alcohol misuse. Return Interviews help address problems that caused a child to go missing, reduce further instances of running and find out if a child came to harm. Return interviews are also a vital tool in disrupting abuse and sexual exploitation and providing evidence for prosecutions of the perpetrators.
