Cavett’s father and grandfather told NBC 6 the man messaged her on Facebook to come down to Florida for the weekend and that he possibly sent her money.

Curtis Cavett said he knows his daughter sells clothes and other items on Facebook’s Marketplace. Police have not confirmed these details, according to NBC 6.

Late Monday, the Miramar Police Department tweeted that investigators were searching for Cavett, adding they were “concerned for her safety and well-being.”

Cavett, according to her Facebook page, lives in Atlanta. Police said she was last seen driving a mid-to-late 1990s white Chevy 3500, with a red tailgate and a “Baby on Board” sign on the passenger window.

Gina Lewis, one of the three sisters searching for Cavett, spoke at a news conference Tuesday. Lewis and two of her sisters drove from Alabama to South Florida to connect with their 2-year-old nephew.

“We just want to know that my sister is OK,” Lewis told reporters Tuesday. “We’re really not sure what’s going on.”

The family said Cavett didn’t have any known ties to South Florida. They’re desperate for answers.

“If you are OK, please let someone know,” Lewis said. “She would have never just left him like that.”

The sisters met with detectives at the Miramar Police Department in hopes of learning why little Kamdyn Cavett was alone and what happened to Cavett.

In a Facebook post, the Walker County Sheriff’s Office asked anyone with information about Cavett’s whereabouts to contact the Miramar Police Department in Florida.

During a news conference Monday, Ebony Williams told reporters she saw the little boy in the parking lot and figured the child's mother must be close by. She said she got out of her truck and heard him crying.

“I asked him ‘Where’s your mommy?’ and he just kind of pointed kind of everywhere,” Williams said. “I reached out my hand for him, and he grabbed a couple of my fingers and we just started walking around the complex hoping that I would find somebody looking for him or calling his name.”

Williams, who said she's been staying with a friend at the apartment complex, asked neighbors if they knew the boy's mother. She knocked on doors, but no one recognized the child. She said he wasn't able to communicate, it was all baby talk.

She called police, who took the child to the station, and posted his picture on social media, searching for his parents. The photos went viral, which is how Lewis saw them.

“We’re in the middle of a pandemic,” Lewis said. “So it’s not like they were taking a vacation out of the blue with the baby. There’s no way.”
