In brief: Many causes
Missed periods can be caused by stress, increased exercise/athletics, or sudden changes in weight.
Sometimes the problem can be more serious and may require hormonal evaluation. I would take her to her doctor.

In brief: Unpredictable Period
Having ruled out pregnancy the other possibility is that adolescents will typically have irregular periods when they first have their periods.
Other possible causes are medications or an underactive thyroid.
