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.
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.

“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.MORE NEWS: Passing Asteroid Lit Up South Florida Sky
