Runaway Dramas

December 27, 2006

Imagine this: Your teen daughter has run away to be with a much older guy. For two families, this became reality, and now they want to rebuild their troubled relationships with their daughters.

 

 

Searching for Brittney

When Heidi's pregnant 16-year-old daughter, Brittney, didn't return home one Sunday night, Heidi's greatest fears came true. It's been one month, and Heidi has done extensive research but has not been able to find her daughter.

 

"He totally ruined her life."

 


 

The Hunt is On

In order to help Heidi find Brittney, the Dr. Phil show arranged for private investigator and former FBI agent, Harold Copus, to work on the case. 

 

 

"I have to call the police now."

 


 

The Road to Recovery

After two months in the Youth Care, Inc. program, has Brittney made any progress? And, how is her relationship with her mother? 

   

 

 "When I first came to Youth Care, I was very confused."

 


 

"Living Here Is Like Living in Hell"

Kim, 15, has run away from home six times in the last year and most recently ran halfway across the country to be with her married boyfriend. Her parents, Laura and Rodney, say they're at the end of their rope.

 

What can this family do to get things back on track?
