Loved ones of a missing Georgia woman are pleading for information about her whereabouts after her toddler was found roaming a street alone nearly a week ago in Florida, WSVN-TV reports.
Authorities have been searching for 21-year-old Leila Cavett since her 2-year-old son, Kamdyn, was found last Sunday morning barefoot and wearing only a diaper and a T-shirt in Miramar, Florida.
“She just needs to be with her son. She just needs to be with her family,” Curtis Cavett, Leila Cavett’s father, told the television station. “Whoever out there who knows any information or whereabouts on where is Leila Cavett, I would like to say, please put your effort forward.”
As CrimeOnline previously reported, police on Wednesday found Leila Cavett’s vehicle, a white Chevrolet pickup, in a busy Walmart parking lot in nearby Hollywood, Florida. Curtis Cavett said the discovery of the truck at that location suggests someone saw something.
Robert Ferdinand, Leila Cavett’s grandfather, also urged anyone with information to offer a tip about his granddaughter’s whereabouts.
“Her face is all over TV, Facebook, in the news, and she’s recognizable,” Ferdinand told WSVN-TV.
The investigation into Leila Cavett’s disappearance started after her son, Kamdyn, was found Sunday morning at an apartment complex in Miramar, part of metro Miami.
Leila Cavett had been living in Georgia and her family does not know why she was in Florida. Her father told the television station he wants her to know that will do whatever it takes to find her.
“Baby, I love you more than the world, and you can always call your dad,” Curtis Cavett told WSVN-TV. “Just reach out to me as much as you possibly can. If you can just get to that phone, I will get to you.”
Leila Cavett is described as 5-feet-4-inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds. A tattoo that reads “Kamdyn” is on her inner right arm and she also has a small Jesus fish tattoo on her right wrist.
To report information about the whereabouts of Leila Cavett, call Hollywood Police or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
