LEEDS, AL (WBRC) -

A mother is hoping her child returns home safely.

Destiny Holliday, 14 of Leeds, has been missing since Saturday, according to her parents. Tuesday, her family posted signs in the community, hoping to generate leads in her location.

Police say they are treating Destiny's case as a juvenile runaway case. They say they have no evidence right now that shows she was taken against her will or that she has been harmed.

They say they've received many leads but most have not lead to Destiny.

Her mother, Stefanie Ritch, says she had gone to the store the day and left Destiny at home. That afternoon, she couldn't find her daughter. Destiny's parents say she recently had been on a chat line through an app called Kik where she was able to meet boys, some of whom may have been older but used a fake age.

"I think she knew who she was going with, got in the car with someone she knew," Stefanie said.

"She's a great child. I have a feeling she's with someone and please bring our child back to us. Destiny come home. That's all we want," Palvin Ritch, Destiny's father, said.

Police say they've been monitoring Destiny's Facebook page and cell phone to see if they can monitor her. If you have any information on Destiny's location, please call Leeds Police.
