It has been exactly one week since Kiera Bergman disappeared, leaving behind her wallet, purse and keys.

"We want her home," pleaded her mom, Kiersten Bragg.

Bergman's family lives in San Diego, but has been staying in Phoenix while they look for her. Saturday night they hosted a vigil and prayed for her to come home.

"She is an amazing kid. She has a bigger-than-life personality. You never see her without a smile from ear to ear," said her dad Chris Bragg. "She used to go to church events do hair and makeup for the homeless just because it made them feel better."

Bergman was at her Glendale apartment coming home from work last Saturday.

A week later, her father is pleading for anyone with information to come forward.

"If you know anything at all, no matter how big or small, it could be what breaks this case and brings our daughter home," said Bragg.

Meanwhile, Bergman's cousins have set up a Gofundme to help pay for her family to stay in Phoenix while they search for her.

They say any money left over will go first to help pay for any medical expenses Bergman might need when found, and the rest will go to her two favorite charities.
