Leila Cavett Missing and May be in Danger, Her Baby Boy Found Alone
MIAMI, Florida – There is a possible break in the case of a toddler found wandering all alone, wearing only a T-shirt and diaper, outside of a Miramar apartment complex on Sunday.
Miramar PD say they are checking on a tip regarding the playful little boy, who appears to be two or three years old, found Sunday standing by himself near busy SW 68 Avenue and 18 Street.
A post on Facebook says Leila Cavett has been missing and her family believes the child is hers.
The family has been in contact with Miramar police, who confirms they are working the lead and have not been able to rule it out. Other leads, they say, have not been credible.
Leila Cavett could be the mother of the child found wandering Miramar alone.
According to social media, the apparent mother lives out of state and family and friends say they aren’t sure why she was in South Florida. She has no family or friends here, they say.
Police said Cavett was last seen driving a mid-to-late 90s white Chevy 3500 with a maroon or red tailgate. The department is concerned for safety and well-being.

The boy is still waiting for someone to come forward. No one even knows his name.
“I’m not a hero, I’m not anything else. I’m just a mom who saw a baby,” said Ebony Williams, a mother of four, who found the child.
“He’s very pleasant, very friendly. I asked him, ‘Where’s your mommy?’ He kinda just pointed everywhere. I reached out my hand for him, he grabbed my hand and I just walked around the complex hoping I would find somebody looking for him, calling his name,” she recalled.
What Ebony found is that nobody was looking for him, in fact, no one at the complex even recognized him.
“All of my friends, we’re all still waiting for the Amber Alert to say somebody was looking for this baby. Like I said, it’s heartbreaking because nobody’s looking for him.”
Miramar police went door to door in the neighborhood where he was found, passing out flyers, hoping someone can provide a clue as to where this little guy’s parents are.
If you know who he is or have any information, please call the Miramar Police Department at (954) 602-4000.
