Lily Cowart, 17, was last seen on December 12.
Her parents say she left their home on 4th Avenue to go get her library card, she even promised to call when she arrived.
But Lily never made that call, and her phone has been shut off.
The family has only been in the Valley for six months, and say they have no idea where she might be, and they just want her home to celebrate the holidays together.
"Her two little sisters haven't stopped crying, her youngest sister has been wearing her clothes. It's just been hard on everybody with Christmas coming, we were all excited and had a lot of things for all of them this year. It's kind of thinking the spirit out of it, it's just hard to be in the Christmas spirit if you're not all here," said Norman Terrell, Lily's step father.
