MIRAMAR (CBSMiami) – Kengeral Allen is a mother on a mission, trying to find her daughter Trukita Scott; everyone calls her Kita. The mother of two has been missing since June 25th. “Today make 19 days,” said Allen. “It like a nightmare, you just want to find her, bring her home to her kids.”
Her car was found several days later in Miami near NW 40th Street and 10th avenue.
“It is the only mission I have in my life, is to bring her home,” said Allen. “Nothing else matters, nothing else matters.”
Allen went to a cell phone store hoping she could get help tracking Kita’s phone. Just after her disappearance Allen said her daughter’s phone pinged all over South Florida. “Coral Springs, North Miami, Homestead, Florida City, it was everywhere the second day after she was missing,” said Allen.
Now, that signal is gone so Kita’s parents are hitting the streets. They’ve been passing out these fliers, at all hours, in all areas.
“We’ve been calling several of her friends, we been passing out fliers in the most dangerous areas, as you can imagine,” said Allen. “We get home now at two in the morning because we out searching at night. They say the evil prowl at night so that’s when we’re out searching.”
Police wanted to speak to her ex-boyfriend, Carl Watts. He and Kita have a one year old son.
Watts is in custody now from a different case. Investigators say he’s the man on this surveillance video who’s accused of trying to kidnap a teen from a bus stop.
Meanwhile, Kita’s family is keeping the faith, but doing everything they can to find answers on their own. “The more time that goes on, the harder it gets,” said Allen with tears streaming down her face. “I pray every night. I pray for her safety, I pray for my sanity. I don’t know what I’m going to do if anything happen to my baby. I just don’t know.”
Kita’s family and friends will be passing out fliers and holding a prayer vigil this weekend, hoping to get any information they can about her whereabouts.
