Him being a run away will land him and his parents in some major legal troubles.

The police may have grounds to press charges against him/and parents depending on state laws. In many states, running away/inciting panic is punished by law. He may end up classified as a missing person, which would get police involved in looking for him.

If you're in contact with him, you may suggest that he stop by a shelter of some variety. At least there he will have food/a place to sleep to sort everything out.

You may want to encourage him to apply for emancipation then, if he's able to take care of himself.

If not, charges will come down, if he's in the same state as you. If not, you'd have to look on Google for state laws in his location. He's still legally under his parents care, no matter how well he can take care of himself.
