The father of a young mother who went missing in South Florida is hopeful after he says that she may have met a man online shortly before he went missing.
More than a week has passed since Leila Cavett’s disappearance. The search for the 21-year-old began on July 26, after her 2-year-old son Kamdyn was found wandering alone in the parking lot of a Miramar apartment complex with nothing more than a shirt and diaper.
Hollywood police said her white truck was found abandoned last week in a Walmart parking lot at US 441 and Hollywood Boulevard.
Curtis Cavett, her father, said that after searching her social media, she believes she met a man through an online dating website and could have been to South Florida to meet him. She had previously been living in Georgia and has a family in Alabama.
“It’s on his Facebook. I have to meet with detectives tomorrow so we can see if we can get his messages on his Facebook,” Curtis Cavett said Monday.
She said she is working with detectives on any leads, but is concerned that she has been kidnapped.
“I want to let you know, ‘Listen, I love you. I’m here, my team and I are looking for you,'” said Curtis Cavett. “We will not stop until we get some answers or justice. We want people to be aware of their surroundings.”
Kamdyn Cavett remained in child protective custody.
Anyone with information should call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
