SURPRISE, Ariz. -

The search is on for a missing valley teen. And police believe her disappearance may be connected to a popular gaming device found in millions of living rooms.

Vaghe Cain is 14 years old and has been missing since Friday morning from her home in Surprise. She is what's known as a gamer – she loves playing first person shooter games like Call of Duty and Red Dead Redemption.

Her parents believe that her X-Box Live opened the door to someone who was able to lure this vulnerable teenager away from home.

"I just want to tell Vaghe I love her unconditionally and I want her home, she needs to come home, she belongs at home," said Chandie Cain.

You can see it on their faces... a mother and father in anguish worried sick about their 14-year-old daughter -- doing everything in their power to bring Vaghe Cain home.

"You can watch your kids real closely and it can still happen to you."

Chandie and Nick Cain believe their daughter was lured away from her home by someone she met online while playing X-Box Live.

"I do think an adult or older person may have manipulated her."

Her parents say Vaghe has suffered from acute social anxiety since she was 8 years old, and has panic attacks when around people her own age.

Because of that she attends an on line school and spent hours on X-Box live playing first-person shooter games like Call of Duty.

Chandie says she took her daughter to get her braces tightened and ran other errands last Thursday. She says Friday morning was a normal day until her daughter simply vanished as the family was setting up for a yard sale.

"If she's in trouble she needs to, if she can, call somebody they will help her, 911, anything," says Cain.

Surprise police saying they know Vaghe Cain left home on her own, but she is very vulnerable and the longer she is away the more worried everyone is.

UPDATE: Missing Arizona teen found in California
