150. Impact Ranch
A 14 year old boy was on a hike arranged by this program. Somehow he got lost and in the press it was seens as a runaway attempt due to the work done by employees from the ranch.
The family has since given up on the ranch and want the boy to return home. However when you reach out attempting to get residential treatment there is a catch. You can become stuck in the system as a family and lose your child. Unlike others who lost their lives in the wilderness he made it out alive and it is now up to the court to decide whether his chance of continued survival should be improved by returning him home.
It doesn’t like a fun place to be even if it was a real runaway attempt.
