Broward County, Fl (treasurecoast.com)- Federal authorities have taken into custody a man purporting to be the last person to see a missing Georgia woman, whose 2-year-old son was found wandering alone last month in a shirt and diaper at a South Florida parking lot.
They arrested Shanon Demar Ryan on two counts of lying to a federal officer, according to an online jail booking log for the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
Leila Cavett, was last seen just hours before her 2-year-old son, Kamdyn, was found wandering alone outside an apartment complex.
Authorities believe Cavett and her son had arrived in South Florida the day before she went missing — and after spending time in several Broward County communities. Her vehicle was found unattended July 28 in Hollywood.
In a rambling 51-minute video posted on Facebook, a man who appears to be Ryan says he was the last person to see Cavett.
“We have a missing woman, and I gave the police everything that I know,” he says in the video.
