Do they have a video of her at Walmart? If it's in the parking lot maybe it's not clear or doesn't show her face and that's why they didn't release it? Idk.

Leila Cavett was last seen July 25, according to an attorney for the family.

“Leila Cavett, 21, of Dawsonville, was last seen July 25 in a Walmart parking lot in Hollywood, Florida, with a man, according to Javaron Buckley, an attorney hired by Cavett's family.”

Since her vehicle was found there and Walmart is known to have cameras many believe there is video ...

Do we know when she left Georgia to go to Florida? I think this is an important thing we need to know.
I think there was some conjecture that she drove thru the night (Friday or Saturday) while K slept but I haven't heard that we know this.
Anyway, I was thinking if she did drive thru the night perhaps she took something to help her stay awake? idk.
Also, adrenaline can really get one going where they just don't sleep.
I think her cell activity is going to prove important in this case.

Did we ever find out? I don't think we ever found out EXACTLY when she left Georgia. I would like to know that too.

I'm so far behind I skipped from page 8 to here. Apologies in advance I dunno if this has been addressed.

I have a real doubt that a child of Kam's age could free himself from a carseat and get out of a truck and run off. There is zero way my 27 month old granddaughter has the strength to undo her very snug harness, let alone open the door to their Suburban (noted for height) and get safely to the pavement. I believe he was intentionally dropped off. All jmo.

I think he was either dropped off AFTER something bad happened to Leila OR Leila KNEW something bad was going to happen to her so she begged the perp to drop him off.

Hollywood Police Department is listed as the contact authority on the Namus page and would be the agency responsible for updating the page. Most agencies don't update that often, in my experience, so I take it as "true at the time the page was created." The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs)

Then it must be pretty reputable if Hollywood Police Dept. updated it. Thanks for that information.

With Leila's FB being taken down today or last night and also the police never released a description of the man she was seen with other than he was black yet we know that there are tons of video cameras at all Walmarts - LE should have video of him in the parking lot at the very least. I think that her FB contained evidence and that is why it was taken down - to preserve evidence and I think LE knows exactly who she traveled to Florida to see. Otherwise, they would have released a sketch or more of a description.

I agree

I think she was incapacitated in some way.
I'm just so confused as to how K got there.
Was he dropped off in a strange place to him? How frightening for him. Can you imagine?
Did he find his way out of an apartment? Had his mother been there with someone else and left?
Did someone (LC and/or friend) know someone who lived in the apt. complex K was found?
Had they been in a vacant apt?
Is the complex just somewhere familiar to drop off K?
I have sooooooo many questions.
This is a bazaar case imo.

I think they haven’t released anything because they don’t need help. I think they’ve identified the man she was seen with and I think this man is the same man she was Facebook messaging with and they are carefully building a case for his arrest. Moo

I agree, or at least want to convince myself of this. I can’t get this case off my mind and really hope there are answers. I wish nothing more than for Leila to be okay, but I’m not so convinced that this will be the outcome.

I don't think it's clear at all that LE even have a suspect. They haven't given an update in so long. I wish the media would press them for information.

Leila Cavett: Law firm volunteers ramp up search for missing mother of abandoned tot, lawyer says she was seen with a male in FL [Reports]
snipped
Volunteers for a Chicago-based law firm are in Hollywood, Florida, passing out flyers in hopes of finding missing Georgia mother, Leila Cavett.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Cavett, 21, of Dawsonville, Georgia, hasn’t been heard from since July 26, after she possibly drove to Florida with her son.

During the morning hours of July 26, a passerby discovered Cavett’s son, 2-year-old Kamdyn Cavett Arnold, wandering alone in a t-shirt and a diaper outside of an apartment complex off of SW 68th Avenue in Miramar. After searching the area for the toddler’s caretakers without luck, the passerby contacted the police
------------------
It's great to see Leigh on her case.

They might be holding off on a placement hoping LC is found in

For anybody that doesn't know--NamUS is the US's official website for missing people and unidentified and unclaimed remains. It's run by the Justice Department's National Institute of Justice in conjunction with the University of North Texas. They also provide forensic services (fingerprints, DNA, etc.), victim support, outreach, and a number of other services.

FBI Helps Search For Missing Georgia Mom Leila Cavett Whose Toddler Was Found Wandering Alone In Miramar

Leila Cavett, 21, of Dawsonville, was last seen July 25 in a Walmart parking lot in Hollywood with a man, according to Javaron Buckley, an attorney hired by Cavett’s family.

Police discovered Cavett’s white mid- to late-’90s Silverado 3500 pickup truck in Hollywood on July 28, with its “baby on board’ sign displayed in a passenger side window.

( see photo's @ link)

If you have any information about where Leila Cavett may be, call Broward Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS. And remember, you can remain anonymous.
This clears up some information and leaves some questions:

July 25- Leila last seen in Walmart parking lot with a man in Hollywood. Leila last seen driving the truck (was Kamdyn with them?)

(So Leila did not drive through the night as some were asking since she was sen day before at Walmart).

July 26- Kamdyn found wandering apartments 2 miles away from that Walmart in Miramar.

July 28- Truck found in Hollywood

I’m looking at a map to see how they were at a Walmart in Hollywood that is also 2 miles from where Kamdyn was found, see attached Walmart to apartments 2.1 miles.

So if they were at the Walmart the day before and then Kamdyn found near the next day, the guy must live nearby or they were staying at a hotel. I think he lives close. Moo

This makes a lot of sense. That would explain Kamdyn being relatively well cared for when he was found as well. Makes me think something happened to Leila Saturday night, possibly after she put Kamdyn to bed for the night. He slept through whatever happened and the person or people responsible for Leila's disappearance just left him outside the next morning. Would also explain why Kamdyn pointed all around when asked where his mom was. Where he was found wasn't far from where he had last been with her, so he pointed around because he knew he hadn't traveled far from the space he was last at with her but he didn't know where he exactly came from. Maybe he was even woken up and dropped outside so he was really confused and afraid. All jmo. I'm glad he is ok, but this is really tragic.

The fact that Kamdyn had a dirty diaper on when he was found makes me think that he had to have been at the apartment complex for a little while at least by himself. He was found at around 8 am so that means he would have been dropped off pretty early in the morning....if he was dropped off just an hour or so before he was found, say at around 7, I’m wondering why no one saw this happen because most people head to work around this time.

I've thought about this as well.
I wonder if they had stayed in a vacant apt.

Maybe he wasn't dropped off but walked/wandered out because he was left alone? moo
