THROGS NECK - The parents of a 16-year-old missing Bronx teen are pleading for her safe return.

Skyla Matos has been missing for the last three days after she vanished from her parents’ home. 

Her parents have been handing out fliers in their Throgs Neck neighborhood and throughout the borough. 

Surveillance video from a neighbor’s balcony on Balcom Avenue showed Skyla leaving her home in the middle of the night on July 13. The video isn’t clear, but her parents say she was pacing back and forth before she apparently decided to leave. 

Her parents say she took $125 before she left and did not take her cellphone. 

Skyla was seen yesterday by two anonymous tip callers in the Fordham area, but has not been seen since.
