It is good that she was found. The bad thing about treating a simple runaway ("she left willingly . . . . .") as seriously as a stranger abduction is that people eventually get burned out at the level of panic and hype. I hope it never gets to the point where we hear of a real abduction and simply say, "just another teenager running away for the drama of it all". Her parents need to spend some serious time getting her under control before the entire community gets sucked into another panic over her wandering off.

My suggestion is family counseling as well as individual therapy for the teen.

runaway - I think the parent's time has passed. the happy return will be short-lived.
