    I'd write my mum a note to say that I haven't been kidnapped. What can the police do, and will the police check my internet history?

    Nothing My parents both left home when they were 15, my cousins moved out when they were 16.

    In the UK you can leave home at 16, you're not a kid anymore. Police won't get involved.

    Can't you talk to your parents & explain why you want to leave? & if they don't listen, then run away.. but not before then.

    Well if after three days noting has been heard of you, they will file a missing persons report and send out a search party. And yes, the first place they will check is your internet history to make sure you haven't got lost in the vortex of the internet matrix.

    Will I get reported as a missing person? I'd still be going to school where my brother would see me.

    I'd still be going to school and my brother would see me there everyday, as well as all the teachers. Would the police still check my internet history then?

    Well it seems a bit silly to look for you in the internet if they know where you are, doesn't it?

    But they wouldn't know where I was living, would they look at my internet history if they don't know that?

    Probably not, no. But, you do realise you can clear your internet history...

    Surely it'd be easier to just ask you?

    Well you can see the history by request it from the ISP or tapping the router can't you? I'd be taking my laptop with me, but I heard that everything is recorded by your ISP.

    No, it's very unlikely that they would check your internet history.

    If you left a note for your parents, stating that you're safe, then the police really have no need to get involved.
