Georgia mom missing, toddler son found wandering alone in Florida

Authorities are searching for a missing Georgia woman whose toddler son was found wandering alone in a Florida city nearly two weeks ago.

Leila Cavett, 21, was last seen on July 25 in Hollywood, Florida, driving a mid-to-late 90s white Chevy 3500, with a “Baby on Board” sign on the passenger window, police said.

Her 2-year-old son, Kamdyn, was found the next day, walking by himself in the parking lot of an apartment complex in Miramar, about two miles away, according to local outlets.

The young mom’s truck was found July 28 in the parking lot of a Walmart in Hollywood, cops said.

Her father, Curtis Cavett, told local outlet WTVJ he believes his daughter traveled from her Dawsonville, Ga., home to South Florida to meet a man she met on an online dating website.

“It’s on her Facebook,” he said, adding that he is hopeful his daughter will be found.

“I want to let her know, ‘listen, I love you. I’m here on the ground, me and my team is here searching for you,’ ” he said.

Other relatives have also traveled to Florida from Alabama and Tennessee to search for Cavett.

“Every day that passes she could be in more and more danger and we just don’t even know it. We have no answers. We cannot get a hold of her in the slightest,” her sister, Tyuania Cavett, told WFOR-TV.

Her grandmother, Carol Ferdinand, said Cavett would never leave her son of her own free will.

“She would have never left her baby, never,” Ferdinand told the outlet.

“I think she been snatched up off the streets.”

The boy was placed into foster care, while Cavett’s relatives work to gain custody, Javaron Buckley, an attorney hired by the family, told CNN.

Local police are continuing to hunt for clues in the disappearance and the FBI is helping in the search.

The bureau is “providing assistance to local enforcement,” spokesman James Marshall told the outlet in a statement.
