My 11 year old ran away from home

My 11 year old ran away from home

I need some help. I have 2 children 11 and 7.
My 11 year old ran away from home recently during the night when everyone was asleep. The police were called as soon as I got up in the morning to find her bed empty, bag and few clothes are gone and a goodbye letter. They found said child a few hours later at school. Since then she told the police I'm the worse person in the world and if is forced to go home will do a runner again.
We are expecting another child in a few weeks. Child just had a brand new bedroom make over, everything brand new. Complained few days later bed is too small. (It's a double) can't seem to keep room clean and also hates cleaning it (it smells so bad half the time) hates the fact child doesn't get wat they want when they want it. Doesn't get money when wanted (steals money from me every chance child gets) always lying so I have trust issues with said child.
I'm also on said child's case about hygiene as they about to hit puberty. Said child wants to live with step mother in NSW as they think that's better. Step mother has 3 kids (6,3,and 1 who has serious health issues in and out of hospital) father isn't in the picture either as they are separating. So step mother is on her own. I have a good relationship with who I still see as my child's step mother.
Child wants to live there but I don't want child to throw this hissy fit, get everyone worried over child and child getting wat they wanted but I can't deal with child running away again.
Someone please help me. Wat do I do?
