On Friday afternoon, police were combing NW Miami Dade neighborhood, a trailer park near 202nd Street and 55th Ave, hoping someone had seen the girls.
Investigators said the older child has run away before.
“Michelle has done this in the past. This time a little different where she took her young sister who’s 8-years old with her,” said Daniel Ferrin with Miami-Dade Police.
Neighbor Jack Teachman who is close to the father said learning the children are gone surprised him.
“I spoke to the father last night. He called me to go feed the dogs. I fed the dogs and gave water. He never mentioned anything about the daughters missing,” said Teachman.
Investigators said the children’s grandmother in North Miami has custody of the girls.MORE NEWS: Condo Collapse: Families Anxiously Await Word On Loved Ones
