A local family is asking for help tonight to find a 15-year-old girl who has been missing for 12 days.

They're worried she’s in danger, and police have issued a Silver Alert for her. The community is trying to help bring her home.

Huda Roushdy was last seen at her aunt's house in South Bend on October 4. She doesn’t have the medication she needs, and family and community members are worried she’s in a life-threatening situation.

"Oh my God, Huda. Huda. Just call me."

Huda’s mom, Tara Roushdy, says her daughter has been dealing with bipolar disorder since she was 10 years old. Huda has a history of attempting suicide and harming herself.

Tara says her daughter is very smart and charismatic, but worries that Huda sometimes puts her trust in the wrong people.

"Her home life has just all revolved around trying to keep her happy and healthy and trying to get her mentally and educationally successful."

Huda moved to South Bend to get better care for her mental health and she was always under her family’s watch.

Tara says she and her daughter had conversations on FaceTime weekly and when she was anxious, Huda would always call her mom.

Tara says it’s unlike Huda to not call her, especially after 12 days.

"I’m going crazy, you know how much I love you to death and how much I put you first for everything. Please, please, please call me."

Community members like Kristin Eleanor have been moved to search for Huda. As a mother, Eleanor is concerned for Huda's safety and says it’s important that the community continues searching for her.

"When it’s one child that this has happened to, it’s all of our children. So we need to do right by our children, we can’t fail them."

"She’s the first thing I think of even before she left, she’s the first thing I think of when I wake up, and she’s always on my mind all day long. I’m just constantly worried about her."
