Out-of-Control Stepdaughter


My teenage stepdaughter (14 this July) has got 'out of control' for us in the last 2 weeks. She went out after school to a friend's and didn't tell us she was going; she's absenting herself from school, stole my car on Friday night, went missing on Sunday morning, says she's been raped last year. Set her own punishment for stealing my car ie grounding for 2 months and immediately broke it the next day ie Sunday.

We don't know what to do with her and we're worried it's going to get worse and we don't know what to do. The police are involved re the rape, the police were involved re the car and we had to file a missing persons report. Just prior to writing this I was advised that she's absented herself from school again this afternoon. What can we do?
