Molly was last seen May 19 at Firefighters Memorial Park by Oakey and Torrey Pines. Geovany Reyes, Molly's father, was supposed to pick her up that day.

"I haven't slept at all. Just waiting for her. I sit outside our house, waiting for her," he said.

It's been an excruciating week for the Geovany Reyes' family. Eight long days passed by without knowing what happened to his youngest daughter. Geovany had dropped her off for a dance practice with her friends.

"Six o clock, she called and said 'Dad, I'm ready'. So I come back and she wasn't here. She was gone."

They tried calling her phone but there was no answer. They checked her location through the Find my iPhone app but they couldn't find her. Doris Abrego, Molly's mother says, "We go everywhere. All the parks. All the apartments, houses, stores. We've been giving this away everywhere."

Olivia Murphy received one of these flyers from Geovany. Since then, she's been helping in the search to bring Molly home, reaching out to multiple organizations and spreading the word on social media.

"Just the look on his face and how distraught he was just hitting the pavement looking for his daughter it just broke my heart," says Murphy.

Molly's family fears something bad might have happened to her. They say she was a responsible teen and there was no reason for her to run away.

"She knows I'm not mad at her. There's no issue, there was nothing," says Geovany.

Geovany and Doris are leaving no stone unturned to find their daughter. They're holding on to hope as they race against time.

"Just Molly, come back home, please."
