Reward Offered in Las Vegas Missing Toddler Case

Posted: Updated:


A reward of $15,000 is being offered for information that leads to Everlyse Cabrera's whereabouts, or provides the information that leads to an arrest in her disappearance.

On Saturday, June 17, it will be a week since the two-and-a-half-year-old vanished.  Over the weekend, family members from California arrived in Las Vegas to see the memorial to the little girl and to offer their support and help in the search.

Authorities announced that two groups donated thousands of dollars to help police with their investigation.

Those groups are the Carrol Sund Carrington Foundation and Meadow Gold Dairy.

Thursday night, people living in Everlyse's neighborhood protested outside her foster parent's house demanding the couple talk to police.

(12 p.m.) -- Everlyse Cabrera's biological parents have been searching for her and holding candlelight vigils nightly since learning of her disappearance.

But the foster parents have stopped cooperating with police in the investigation. Neighbors living next to the family are angry and protested Thursday night in front of the foster parents house.

Robert Caracciola, a neighbor, said, "Why don't you help like the rest of the neighborhood? We're all here to help. Where are you? We don't see you out here. We didn't see you out here on Saturday when she went missing. We don't see you anywhere."

Channel 8 Eyewitness News has tried to contact the foster parents for their side of the story, but no one has answered the door.

If you have any information call North Las Vegas Police at 633-9111.

(Jun. 15) 6 p.m. -- A $10,000 reward is now being offered for information in the Everlyse Cabrera case.

The two-and-a-half-year-old was last seen at her foster parent's home on Saturday, June 10.

The case is raising questions about how foster parents are chosen and how often the children are checked on.

Foster parents have to submit to background checks a provide a nice place for the child. The children are checked on and if there are signs of abuse the child is removed.

(Jun. 15) 3:30 p.m. -- The search for Everylse Carbrera is now into it's fifth day and the trail is turning colder with each passing minute.

Police and a team from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children are working hard but have had no luck learning what happened to the 2-year-old girl who was reported missing from a North Las Vegas home on Saturday, June 10.

Police have scheduled a news conference for Friday to talk about the case. It is expected that they will announce a reward for information leading to the toddler's return or for information that would lead to an arrest if the child is a victim of foul play.

Despite pleas for help,the people who last saw Everlyse,her foster family still won't cooperate with police in the investigation.

The Channel 8 I-Team has learned another foster child was injured in the care of the foster family once before. The child allegedly suffered third-degree burns and though the injury was reported to the Clark County Child Abuse Hotline, Child Protective Services never investigated.

Neighbors of the foster family are suspicious.

Steve Ermilio said, "We feel like breaking that door down, dragging them out, and getting the truth out of them."

Tim Bedwell, North Las Vegas Police, said, "It's getting very hard to think that she walked out on her own and did not contact one person."

Search Keeps Heading in Foster Parents' Direction

Foster Parents of Missing Toddler Uncooperative

No New Leads in Missing Toddler Case

(Jun. 14) -- A team from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is in Las Vegas to help in the case of a missing toddler.  Team Adam is a group of retired police officers who work for the national agency.

The 2-year-old was reported missing on Saturday from her foster parent's home in North Las Vegas.  The foster family, which consists of two parents, a 34-year-old son and a 14-year-old son are no longer cooperating with police.

 Police now want to know if anyone saw Everlyse Cabrera alive and well after May 15th, which was the last time her natural parents saw her.

On Tuesday night, neighbors came together to hold a vigil for the missing child.  Everlyse's parents, Marlena Olivas and Ernest Cabrera prayed and called on the help of the community and the foster parents who were taking care of Everlyse.

"We need their help.  If anything, it should be two mothers out here together begging for everyone's help to find her," said Marlena Olivas, Everlyse's mother.

At this point, police say there is no evidence that a crime has been committed and they say there are no suspects in the case.

The North Las Vegas Police Department will hold a news conference Wednesday afternoon to give more information in the case.

If you have any information call North Las Vegas Police at 633-9111.
