The amount of young wards of the state who've been reported missing is on the rise.
According to police statistics, almost six thousand were reported missing in 2012/13 - an increase of seven hundred on the previous year.
And police have also revealed there were 29 wards of the state who were reported missing more than 50 times.
Family First MP ROBERT BROKENSHIRE says its a concerning situation.
"Without proper care and support they are at high risk and that's unacceptable for them and unacceptable for the community."
ROSS WOMERSLEY from the SA Council of Social Service says many of children leaving care are being housed in larger, impersonal government-run accommodation units.
"It's highly likely the majority of kids who are most likely to be running away are children who are in community residential care and particularly those kids who are in larger residential care facilities," he said.
A car parts business in Salisbury South has been gutted by fire.
Around 50 firefighters were called to Just Commodore Spares on Acrolyn Rd just before 7 this morning.
The two workers inside escaped, with one suffering serious burns to his arms.
Ten News reporter ALICE MONFRIES was at the scene and told FiveAA its a devastating setback for the business owners and their workers.
"The actual premises has been extensively damaged, all the windows have been blown out, you can see through the roller door that there are quite a number of damaged cars," she said.
"There were a number of employees walking around that were very shattered, several were even in tears."
Damage is estimated at $200,000.

Auto component producers in South Australia will meet on Thursday, to devise a survival plan for the sector after Holden's decision to cease vehicle production in Australia.
Premier Jay Weatherill says suppliers will be presented with plans already advanced to help the estimated 25 per cent of companies that are expected to survive Holden's withdrawal to diversify and grow their businesses.
And former minister Greg Combet has been appointed to help rebuild the damaged auto industry.
"There's lot of ideas no doubt and one of my responsibilities will be to have a look at them and talk to relevant companies and the unions about what might be possible and viable," he said.
"Ultimately investments have to be commercially viable and businesses will approach it on that basis."
Police have uncovered a large cannabis crop at West Croydon.
Just before seven last night, officers went to a house on Port Road and found 123 cannabis plants of varying size being grown hydroponically.
The cannabis and equipment was seized from the house, and enquiries continue regarding who is responsible for the growing of the crop.
Senior constable MATT BROWN told FiveAA it's unclear whether anyone was living at the drug home.
"There are groups that will rent properties and they will often pay three or four months in advance so they can set up the crop and grow it, sometimes in every single room of the house," he said.
"All the cannabis and hydroponic equipment was siezed from the house and inquiries continue regarding who is responsible for the growing of the cannabis."
Investigations are continuing - anyone with information should contact Crimestoppers.
