Feature article about Laura Conaway's attempt to find and bring home her runaway brother, Brian, 14. She details how minors' rights and confidentiality laws make it difficult for loving guardians to intervene when a child leaves home and exposes him to danger on the streets. For the last decade, advocates concerned about young people in Maine have tried to win support for Children in Need of Services laws. These exist in several other states to allow parents or caseworkers to obtain a court order mandating treatment for youths who desperately need help but won't accept it.
