RED BLUFF, Calif. -

A Red Bluff teenager went missing on Tuesday and the Red Bluff Police Dept. said they are treating the situation as a "missing persons" case.

14-year-old Marysa Nichols was last seen on Tuesday near the Red Bluff High School tennis courts by another student.

Dianne Whitmire, Marysa's mom, said she dropped her off at her independent school program just before 10 a.m. on Tuesday. The program is called Education Outreach Academy at Red Bluff High School. 

Marysa reportedly told her mom she would walk home around 2:30 p.m.

"I went to look for her. I'm thinking, she must've lost track of time, visiting with a friend or whatever," Whitmire said.

Marysa is a member of the high school band. Her mom said she will often walk home  after practice is done.

"I think she was making her way to the cafeteria to meet with her friends and disappeared," Whitmire said.

Her mom said she does not have a cell-phone. 

"I'm at a loss because everything at home has been phenomenally good. There's no indication to me that she'd run away," Whitmire said.

Marysa is about 5" in height and weighs about 100 lbs. She has black hair with red highlights and was last seen in the same sweatshirt as she is wearing in the above photo.

"I just want my daughter home," Whitmire said. "I just want her home. I want her safe. I just want her home."

The Red Bluff Police Department said they are still in the preliminary part of their investigation but they are currently treating it as a missing persons case.

If you have any information you are asked to contact police.
