Make-a-List Monday: “May be in the company of an adult male”

A lot of teenage girls who run away have run away to be with an older boyfriend. In those cases the NCMEC poster (and therefore the Charley Project) casefile usually has the note that the MP “may be in the company of an adult male.” There’s rarely any details about the companion, beyond the “adult male” designation.

Speaking of such things, a few details about pedophilia and statutory rape in the United States.

  1. These girls’ boyfriends are almost certainly NOT pedophiles as defined by the DSM-V, or Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Pedophiles, by definition, must be attracted to pre-pubescent children, and there must be at least a five-year difference between the pedophile and the child. The runaways I’m talking about are in their teens, and in any case, many of the adult males we’re talking about are in their teens themselves — eighteen or nineteen — or early twenties. It’s a big pet peeve of mine when people use the word “pedophile” to apply to all sexual offenders. Call them predators, perverts, whatever, but “pedophile” is not the correct term.
  2. The age of consent varies by state. I think it’s generally between 16 and 18. In some states there are exceptions to the law for cases where the person under the age of consent is close in age to their partner — i.e. a fifteen-year-old and a seventeen- or eighteen-year-old, in a state where the age of consent is sixteen. And in some cases it can make a difference if the older person in the relationship is in a position of power over the younger one — for example, depending on the state, a high school teacher can be charged with a sex offense if they’re having sex with a student who’s over the age of consent, or even over the age of 18. Also, if an underage person gets married — and in some states you can marry at as young as twelve years old, if you get permission from a parent and/or family court judge — it’s legal for them to have sex with their spouse no matter what age they are.

Anyway, here’s my current list of female runaways who “may be in the company of an adult male.”

  1. Emily Bracamontes
  2. Lisamarie Canchola
  3. Nachida Keota Chandara
  4. Danica Dianne Childs
  5. Kimberlyn Rosa Cubias
  6. Keiosha Marie Felix
  7. Robyn Leslie Hatcher
  8. Janteyl Danielle Johnson
  9. Heyvi Marbely Lainez-Pinot
  10. Bessy Edilia Mazariegos Pereira
  11. Eliud Maluyn Ochoa
  12. Karla Yulisa Portillo-Amaya
  13. Mariela Roblero Bravo and her baby son, Wisley Tojil
  14. Maria Ines Salazar
  15. Elsa Janell “Lilly” Wind
