Walker County: Leila Cavett’s family searching for answers

Local News

Jasper, Ala., (WIAT) — Gina Lewis and her two sisters drove from Jasper, Ala. to South Florida to reunite with their 2-year-old nephew, who was found days earlier wandering alone in the parking lot of an apartment complex.

They met on Tuesday with detectives at the Miramar Police Department in hopes of learning why little Kamdyn Cavett was alone and what happened to his 21-year-old mother, Leila Cavett. Lewis said her sister lives in Atlanta but the rest of the family is from Jasper, Alabama. She says they’re desperate to know what happened to her sister, who had no known ties to South Florida.

The family has now hired an attorney.
