FT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Ft. Lauderdale police may have gotten a break in the case of a missing mother of two.
Trukita Scott, known to her family and friends as “Kita,” has been missing since last Wednesday.
On Tuesday morning, Ft. Lauderdale police ‘tweeted’ out that her car, a gold Nissan Altima, had been found in Miami. Police confirmed that it was located at NWth 40 Street and NW 10th Avenue .
“Oh my God I just want my baby home,” said Kengeral Scott, Kita’s mom.”I want to go and see the car. I’m going to go and look at it to see if there are clues or whatever.”
The car’s location was 24 miles from Fort Lauderdale, according to officials.
“Our detectives are reviewing the vehicle at this time. The condition is not being released,” said Deanna Greenlaw of the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.
Scott’s parents realized something was wrong last week when her children’s school called and asked why had she picked them up.
“She’d never leave the kids at school,” said her mom Kengreal Allen Scott. “She would never leave them at school. Leave them with someone she could have trusted, possibility, but never at school.”
Investigators in Fort Lauderdale are afraid she’s in trouble too.
The family told CBS4 Scott has year old son and three-year old daughter. Carl Watts, the boy’s father, was accused of trying to kidnap a 16-year-old girl from a bus stop last month. He was arrested on the charge and bonded out of jail.
Kita’s mom said her daughter was afraid of Watts. The mom called him the moment she learned Kita was gone. “He said ‘I don’t know what you’re taking about, I’m with my brother and I’m getting ready to drop him off,'” Allen Scott recalled him saying, “I’ll call you back and he never answered the phone after that.”
Scott’s finance Al Livingston is the father of the couple’s daughter.
Last Wednesday, he said they exchanged text messages from the moment Kita left the house. “Baby I love you and miss you already,” Livingston read from his text messages.
He said the last message he got was just after three in the afternoon. “The last thing that at 3:19 I said, ‘I love you so much beautiful’ and she text back at 4:00 and said ‘I love you too bae’.”
“Our detectives would like to speak with Mr. Watts and maybe he could help return this woman back to her young children,” said Greenlaw.
Kita’s kids and her fiancé awaiting any news along with her mother.
“If you know anything, something, anything please call,” said Scott.
Police said even if it seems like the smallest bit of information, they would really like to hear it.
