SAN FRANCISCO, April 16 (UPI) -- San Francisco police were searching for a 12-year-old girl who had been missing since Monday morning when she failed to show up at school.

Billie McGee left her house in the city's Ingleside neighborhood but never arrived at the S.R. Martin College Preparatory School, The San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday.

The seventh-grader is described as an African-American girl, 5-feet-5-inches tall, weighing 140 pounds.

At the time she disappeared, police were told she was wearing a school uniform that consisted of a black and white jacket with a white-colored shirt and black pants.

"Someone took her," said Tina Brown, Billie's mother.

Police Sgt. Steve Mannina said authorities were treating the disappearance as a missing person's case.

Anyone with information about the girl is asked to call the San Francisco Police Department's Missing Person Unit at 415-558-5508.
