A 14-year-old girl has been reported missing in Redford, and her family is asking for help to bring her home.

Amyra Porter was last seen by her mother as she left the family's home in Redford. They believe someone is holding their daughter.

Family members have been searching the neighborhoods since Amyra disappeared. They're also reaching out to everyone through her various social media accounts trying to find her.

Tracy, Amyra's mother, stood with other family members - coming together to ask others to speak up.

"If you know anything, you call 9-1-1, Crime Stoppers, whoever you have to call," she said. "If you have her, drop her off somewhere. You don't have to come, you don't have to be seen, we don't have to know who you are."

Amyra walked out of her house at approximately 4:45 p.m. on July 27 and has not been seen since. She is 5 feet two inches and weighs 115 pounds. 

Ashley Wesley Gordon, Amyra's cousin, said she is tearing up neighborhoods until Amyra returns home.

"Think if it was your daughter, your cousin, your sister. What would you do? You would want somebody to speak up. Speak up, please," she said.

A cash reward of $2,500 will be paid for information in locating Amyra. If the call comes in by midnight Thursday night, another $1,000 will be added.
