Updated: July 24, 2007
Team Adam, part of the Center for Missing and Exploited Children, met with police Wednesday hoping to find more clues in the disappearance of 2-year-old Everlyse Cabrera. The toddler was last seen on Saturday June 10, asleep in her foster home.
News 3 Investigators are keeping an eye on the investigation. She explains why it's a scenario police have seen before.
When a child disappears from his or her bed without a trace, police remember it. They also remember that timing is everything, and if the child isn't found immediately, hot leads quickly turn cold. Everlyse Cabrera is in that situation now, along with another Nevada child who vanished from the valley years ago.
Cary Sayegh, Francillon Pierre, Randi Evers, Karla Rodriguez
and now Everlyse Cabrera. These once vibrant children are now the faces that grace posters and websites of missing children. Their family members continue to hold out hope that one day they will be found.
Cary Sayegh, now believed to be 34 years old, was abducted from the grounds of his day school in October 1978. 20 years ago this August, 3-year-old Francillon Pierre disappeared from the Broadacres Swap Meet. 7-year-old Karla Rodriguez was last seen walking to school in October of 1999
. There's also Randi Evers, who, much like Everlyse Cabrera, disappeared after being put to bed at home. Randi's been gone since 1992.
"There was no evidence whatsoever in Randi's disappearance," explains Metro's Detective Larry Hanna. "He's there wrapped in a blanket and he's not. No evidence of struggle, no violence, no forced entry."
Detective Hanna, who now works in Metro's homicide unit, was assigned to missing persons 14 years ago when he took on the Randi Evers case. The 3-year-old disappeared from an apartment on Rochelle near Flamingo and Koval in the early hours of the morning.
The probability that Randi walked out of that apartment that night is very slim, because it was cold. It was February, he had just his pajamas on, no shoes, and Randi was afraid of the dark," says Detective Hanna.
That February night was a night of partying at the Evers' apartment. Afterward, Randi's stepmother Tina Evers went out to a casino with friends. When she returned, Randi was gone.
"We searched literally every inch from Flamingo to Tropicana to Koval to Paradise," says Hanna. "Keep in mind you've got a 3-year-old child. If it's walking away, number one, it's not going to go far, number two, somebody's going to see it and they're going to do something."
Mike and Tina Evers were possible suspects in a grand jury investigation. The grand jury found no evidence to charge them or anyone else.
"I keep a file on my desk where I keep communications on it. I've been with this case for 14 years now," says Hanna. "There's older cases and there's been some recent, and sometimes parents forget it just takes a second, and kids are gone and they can spend the rest of their lives looking for them."
Mike and Tina Evers have since divorced. Both live in California. Neither one has kept in contact with police about the case.
