What can we do if my sister who was at a detention center has not come home yet? 2 Answers as of January 25, 2011My sister has been sent to a hospital for evaluation in Missouri. She was supposed to be sent to a detention center. We received a call saying she was coming home Friday. The day has come and gone and we are having trouble getting a hold of whoever is in charge. What can we do?

I would start by contacting her case manager. The case manager information should have been given to the family by DOC. You should also call both the detention center and the hospital. Additionally, if your sister is a minor, she should not be receiving medical treatment without speaking with your parents. I would need a lot more information about her case to advice you on your legal options beyond that. If you want further help, feel free to call me.
