It sounds like separation anxiety. My husband and I have dealt with that ourselves. Our daughter would usually fall asleep in our bed, and in the morning she would "magically" end up back in her bed. One of us would take her back to her room while she was asleep. Eventually, she would start coming to our bed less and less. It is a lengthy process, but it will happen for you. Just be patient.

This is difficult but to do with comfort I think. She has not learnt to comfort her slef and put her self back to sleep, so when she goes to sleep and you are there and when she wakes up you are not. She uses you to go back to sleep. this is difficult and she will grow out of it as my son did, but oher wise you have to stick to youe guns and comfort her only in her bed and not pick her up.
