Missing Georgia mom may have met man she was speaking to online before disappearance
A Georgia mother missing for nearly two weeks after her son was found in a Florida parking lot may have met a man she was speaking to online, according to her father.
The FBI has joined the search for the missing Georgia mom of a 2-year-old boy found wandering alone by Florida police 10 days ago, according to a report.
FBI agents are assisting local police who have been searching for 21-year-old Leila Cavett since July 26, WTVJ reported Thursday.
A woman called police earlier that day after finding Cavett’s son Kamdyn on her block in Miramar, Fla., without shoes and in a soiled diaper.

Miramar police said they were concerned for Cavett’s “safety and well-being.”

"This is my worst nightmare," the missing woman’s mother Tina Kirby told WTVJ Thursday in Hollywood. She and her son were there putting up flyers seeking information on Cavett's whereabouts.
"My grandson needs his mom and I need my child," she said.
