She is being brought back to Midway today.

The Liberty County Sheriff's Office needs your help finding a missing teen.

But she's not just any teen -- she's the daughter of Midway Police Chief Kelli Morningstar.

Alexis Maureen Morningstar, 16, was last seen around 7:45 Monday morning at Liberty County High School when her mother dropped her off for school.

But police say Alexis never made it to class.

Morningstar is approximately 5'8" and 145 pounds.

She has blue eyes and recently dyed her hair black.

Senior Patrol Officer Duvale W. Page, Sr., says there are no leads on Morningstar's whereabouts and she has also not been in contact with friends or had any activity on her social media sites.

"Midway Police Department, we're pretty much a close-knit family, and it's like she's a part of us. Especially being the chief of police, that's her daughter, and I can only imagine what any parent would feel if their daughter was missing and they don't have a clue or idea where they are. She's going through some rough times right now," Page said.

Page also said this is out of character for Alexis.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Liberty County Sheriff's Office at 876-2131, Midway Police or 911.
