    SAN FRANCISCO - The family of a missing 14-year-old from San Francisco says they are worried about her safety.

    Katlin Gallaread left home one week ago and her family says she hasn't been heard from since.

    Her father Jason Gallaread says bank records show money was withdrawn from her account.

    He says she has no history of running away and he's concerned that someone may have lured her into leaving home.

    On Tuesday evening, the single father was joined by relatives as he walked through Jefferson Square Park in the Western Addition neighborhood, letting people know he's looking for his daughter.

    He says he and his daughter had dinner together at home last Tuesday.

    She went to her room and that was the last time he saw her.

    "I'm very sad. heartbroken. I'm very concerned for my daughter. The streets are very tough. There's a lot of sick individuals out here," says Gallaread.

    He says Katlin left behind a note indicating that she was depressed because of the isolation caused by COVID restrictions.

    "She can't see her friends. There's no going outside, the social interaction. Everybody's not the same," Joyceline Tobias, Katlin's grandmother.

    Gallaread says Ring video from a neighbor shows the teen leaving her home on February 16 at 9:44 p.m.

    He says about two hours later, bank records show a cash withdrawal at an ATM in San Francisco's Chinatown, an area Katlin does not frequent.

    On Saturday, Gallaread says there were two more ATM withdrawals. This time, the transactions were at a bank in West Sacramento, emptying her account of savings her dad says she earned doing chores.

    "I'm hoping she didn't get tricked into something, that someone has her drugged up somewhere and forcing her to do things. I'm very scared for her right now," says Gallaread.

    The father says when he calls her cell phone, it goes to voice mail.

    "We're not speaking to the activities of cell phone as well as the usage of any credit cards or debit cards. Again, we're looking into every lead," says Officer Robert Rueca with the San Francisco Police Department.

    Police are not saying if surveillance videos show Katlin or someone else withdrawing cash from the ATM.

    Her family says she's attends Wallenberg High School. She loves science, collects rocks and plays the cello.

    The 9th grader often took trips with her father including one to Cambodia shortly before the pandemic. Katlin is half Cambodian.

    Gallaread has a message for his daughter, "Please contact somebody. Let us know you're okay and that you're safe. We want you home. I love you baby."

    Katlin is described as being 5'1" and weighs 90 pounds.

    Police say they are working with other jurisdictions to find the teen.

    Missing San Francisco teen Katlin Gallaread and Michigan teen Tyler Sexton were found on Friday, police said.

    The two teenagers were found in Pittsburg by police, after a city maintenance worker recognized them and notified law enforcement.

    Officials said both children appear to be in good health are reportedly not the victims of any crime.

    Katlin Gallaread's father, Jason Gallaread, said that he was on the way to the police station to pick up his 14-year-old daughter at about 4 p.m.

    The San Francisco girl was believed to be traveling with 16-year-old runaway Sexton before they were found together. It was not immediately clear how the two are connected or why they were together.
    Katlin Gallaread was last seen the night of February 16 at her family’s home in the city’s Northern District. She left without letting her family know, reportedly making big withdrawals from her bank account twice in the following days.

    Jason Gallaread told the San Francisco Chronicle his daughter left a note at home saying she was depressed because of social isolation caused by the coronavirus pandemic. "COVID is like prison for children," he told the paper. "She’s in the house all the time, not being able to be around her friends anymore."

    When he woke up the morning of February 17, she was supposed to be up and getting ready for distance learning at Wallenberg High School. He said he frantically searched the house, but was unable to find his daughter, who wrote in the note that "she was running away to solve her problems."
    Apparently Tyler Sexton was found by police too.
