Family Of Missing Mother Holds Prayer Vigil
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The family of Trukita Scott, the mother of two that has been missing since June 25th, is still searching for answers.
The family hosted an event on Saturday at Moore Park, holding a prayer vigil for Trukita before passing out flyers to help raise awareness for their missing loved one and to try and get any information they can about her whereabouts.
“It’s been hard it’s been hard,” said a family member. “I catch myself staring at pictures and I start to break down, I come home to my mother and memories start to flow and we start to cry and our family starts to break down. But, we still have hope, we still have social support we still have family support we still have friends support and we won’t give up.”
Shortly after Scott went missing Scott’s car was found near NW 40th street and 10th avenue.
The family also tracked Scott’s cell phone, which pinged all over South Florida the day after she disappeared.
Scott has a one year old son with her ex-boyfriend, Carl Watts. Police wanted to speak to Watts who is currently is custody from a different case.
Investigators say that Watts is the man seen on a surveillance video who’s accused of trying to kidnap a teen from a bus stop.
“We try to put it on social media and have hundreds of thousands of people sharing it. Every little lead we see somebody who thinks they saw her or him or the car or anything we don’t care what it is,” added a Scott’s sister. “Any little lead that will help bring my sister home that’s what we’re after we want to bring her home.”
