The Federal Bureau of Investigation announced on Thursday that a reward of up $10,000 is available for information leading to the location of Leila Cavett, a Dawson County woman who disappeared under suspicious circumstances in late July. 

Cavett, 21, was last seen driving a white Chevy 3500 with a red or maroon tailgate and a “Baby on Board” sign, according to police. Her 2-year-old son was found hours later, wandering alone in an apartment complex near the 1860 block of SW 68th Avenue in Miramar, Fla., according to an FBI press release. 

Authorities said that Cavett's separation from her son is completely out of character for the 21-year-old, and after arriving in the south Florida area on July 25, 2020, Cavett had spent time in the areas of Hollywood, Miramar, and Fort Lauderdale before her disappearance. Her vehicle was found unattended on July 28.

In addition to their announcement about the reward, the FBI also released several videos on Wednesday showing the last known images of Cavett, taken at a south Florida  RaceTrac gas station on July 25, 2020.

"We believe some people who are familiar with the circumstances surrounding Leila’s disappearance remain in our community, while some have left the area," an FBI spokesperson said in the release.  "Oftentimes members of our community have information of value, but do not come forward with the information because of concerns that it may not be important. Regardless of how insignificant you think your information might be, or whether you think we already are aware of it, I urge you to come forward, even anonymously, and allow the FBI to make that determination."

According to the FBI, Cavett is described as approximately 5 foot 4 inches tall, weighing about 120 pounds. The 21-year-old had her son's name, “Kamdyn,” tattooed on her right inner arm and a “Jesus fish” tattooed on her right wrist.

Anyone with information on Cavett's disappearance is asked to call FBI Miami at 1-800-CALL-FBI or go to FBI.GOV/TIPS.
