Hello and welcome to Just Answer.
If you know the location of the minor in Ohio, you can contact the local authorities and have him/her returned according to the Interstate Compact for Juveniles (ICJ). The youth is also eligible to be placed into a juvenile detention center if they have runaway from another state or jurisdiction.
"The parent, guardian, person or agency entitled to legal custody of the juvenile who has run away without consent, must petition the court in the home state which has the juvenile jurisdiction for issuing a requisition for the youth's return. Form A (Petition to Return a Runaway) is an optional form. It can be used for guidance as to substance only and a regular court petition may be substituted. The petition shall state the juvenile's name, date of birth, the status of the juvenile's custody, the circumstances of his/her running away, the location of the juvenile, if known at the time application is made, and such other facts as may tend to show that the juvenile who has run away is endangering his/her own welfare or the welfare of others. The petitioner shall sign the affidavit in the presence of a notary public, with the notary affixing the seal/stamp required by the home state's law. The petition shall be executed in triplicate and shall be accompanied by three certified copies of the document(s) on which the petitioner's entitlement to the juvenile's custody is based, such as birth certificate, letters of guardianship or custody decrees."
