Legal age of Missouri

Hello, I have a question about the legal age to leave your parents' house without consent. It has been known to be 18, but I have learned recently it was changed to 17. I was wondering if this was true? Can a friend of mine( who has just turned 17) leave his house now and live with his older brother, without his parents being able to bring him back legally? (Added info.: He lives in Kansas City, MO. He just turned 17, 3 days ago and he has a decent job and car and is brother is 24 years old and can take care of him.)
