SAN ANTONIO -- The parents of a San Antonio teenager, who left home last week and has not been seen since, sat down with KENS 5 Wednesday to talk about their daughter's disappearance.

Moriah Miracle, 17, was last seen wearing a long-sleeved light-blue shirt, black leggings and black-brown knee-high boots.

The 5-foot 1-inch Miracle is a brunette and weighs approximately 125 pounds.

According to the family, Miracle left her northeast-side home around 3:15 p.m. on Dec. 26, 2013.

Her parents fear she met up with a person she had been communicating with online.

"As she walked out the door, I was on the porch and I told her I loved her. And I began praying over her as she walked down the driveway," Laurie Miracle, Moriah's mother, said.

"We vacillate between thinking she's going to come home any minute, or we go check her room to tell her something. Then, the other end is obviously terror. We're living in a nightmare," the mother said.

Moriah Miracle is a high-school junior on a full scholarship at St. Mary's Hall.

Her parents said she is an award-winning artist and a cheerleader, who was recently struggling with "teenager issues."

Although Miracle is considered a runaway, her disappearance is being investigated by the Special Victims Unit of the San Antonio Police Department and the Heidi Search Center.

Moriah's father, local pastor Dr. David Miracle, said his daughter had not accessed any of her social media accounts, or communicated with her older sisters, since she left.

Anyone with information on Moriah's whereabouts is asked to call the San Antonio Police Department at 210-207-7660. Or call the Heidi Search Center at 210-650-0428, or 800-547-4435.
