I wish to inform you that while minor may not be held liable for running away from home but guardian of minor child may compel minor child to come back and any person who has helped minor child in running away from home may be held liable by law enforcement authorities.

Depends on what else he's doing besides just running away.

If you’re a chronic runaway you’ll be put in juvenile. You and your parents will have to attend counseling and they will have to go to parenting classes.

A 14 year is presumed to be under the control of parents and they can drag him back to home with the help of police.

Though possible, it is more likely any adults that assist you will go to jail.
