Our expert says:
This does sound sinister and a thoroughly lousy decision by the girls. Sounds like the silly girl thinks she's in for something glamorous and exciting from the gangsters, rather than the grief she will inevitably find.
It is disgraceful that local social workers and police don't even respond to your calls, but sadl that's not unusual. Have you tried calling every Child Welfare organization and office you can find ? Maybe Childline ? I'm not sure that the police can actually arrest the girls just for being stupid - what they're doing is ollish and dangerous but probably not illegal unless they get involved in prostituion or drug dealing, or something like that. I don't know what the police situation is on older kids running away from home.
