A 2-year-old child was found alone in Florida in a shirt and diaper on July 26, 2020. He was outside an apartment complex in Miramar, Florida on Sunday.
Then, a woman posted on social media that the child is her 2-year-old nephew. Today WEAR news announced that the Miramar Police announced they are looking for Leila Cavett, 21, who they believe is the child’s mother.
On Leila’s Facebook page it states that Leila lives in Atlanta, Georgia. CBS4 reported that Leila lives in Dawsonville, Georgia. Gina Lewis, Leila’s sister who lives in Walker County Alabama said she last heard from her sister over the weekend on Facebook, and doesn’t understand why she would be in Florida.
“Why was she in Florida?” said her sister.
Leila has in the past been in Walker County Alabama and was arrested in Cordova on drug charges in September and received two traffic tickets in October. Because Cavett didn’t appear in court for a traffic violation, her driver’s license was suspended in March.
A post from Miramar PD said detectives “are concerned for her [Leila’s] safety and well-being.”
Leila was last known to be driving a white Chevy 3500 (mid-to-late 90s model) with a maroon or red tailgate and a “Baby on Board” sign on the passenger window.
The child is currently in foster care.
If anyone has seen or heard from Cavett, call the Walker County Sheriff’s Office at (205) 302-6464, or the Miramar PD at (954) 602-4000
