Even if you knew where your family were living now there is very little you could do about the situation yourself, particularly given the history of abuse you've suffered. I would recommend contacting the Police and Social Services, explaining the situation (both current and historical) and letting them take the issue forward. They will have the means to track down your family and take the appropriate course of action, whether that involves removing your sister from their care if she's at risk or forcing your parents to send her to school. Most importantly, they can arrange support for you and for your sister.

Have you discussed the issue with your boyfriend, or maybe his parents? I don't think it's something you should be tackling on your own and I'd advise you to get the help and support of others to discuss the best way to deal with your issues.

This is way too serious a problem to be on just one persons shoulders. As ilovechristmas has said, the police need to be involved in this as abuse like this just cannot be allowed to continue.

Childline could be helpful to talk to, as they will be able to listen and suggest advice. It's a free phone number. I think it is still 0800 1111.

This cannot be left to damage another life. As you ran away when you were young, you know it's a dangerous world when your 15. Money is hard to come by, sleeping rough is no sleep at all, and people who seem nice and caring can often be dangerously abusive.

She needs protection and you need back up and support.
whatever your problem someone else has been there and bears the scars.
