UPDATE (May 25, 6:15 a.m.): A 14-year-old girl reported missing by her family in Chula Vista last week has been found safe, according to police.

CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) -- A South Bay family is desperate to find their 14-year-old daughter who disappeared early Friday morning.

Over the weekend, the Chula Vista family went door-to-door asking neighbors if they've seen 14-year-old Alexis Mia Collins, who also goes by Mia. So far the family has no leads.

"I just want to make sure she's OK, she's safe. I fear for her safety I don't know if something happened to her," said the girl's mother, Mayra Aguiluz.

The teen was staying with her father and step-mother who live in the 300 block of Pearlwood Street, the family said. The home is near Palomar Elementary and Palomar Park.

The girl's father says she went to bed around midnight Thursday, and he discovered her missing Friday morning.

Chula Vista Police are investigating. The department said in a statement on Monday that, "based on the information we have, there is no indication of any suspicious circumstance surrounding this case. We have detectives actively working this case."
