Detectives to Re-Canvass For Everlyse Cabrera

Posted: Updated:

It's been a little more than three months since anyone saw Everylyse Cabrera. Police are at a dead end in trying to find the two-and-a-half-year-old.  

Her foster parents reported her missing from their house in North Las Vegas. Police then started a massive search for the child across the valley on June 11th, but came up empty.

On a street with a Strip backdrop, a mystery gripped the entire valley. On June 11th, a 2-and-a-half-year-old in foster care child went missing.  The foster parents told North Las Vegas Police Everlyse Cabrera pushed a stool to the front door, unlocked it, and walked away into the early morning. The report started a massive valley wide search.  

The child's biological mother drove back to Las Vegas from California. Marlena Olivas was two months away from finishing Department of Family Services requirements to get Everlyse back.  

Since her child disappeared, Olivas tries to keep the faith. "The minute we stop thinking about, we freak out. We need everybody to keep looking and remember her," she said. 

North Las Vegas detectives refuse to forget. In the next two weeks they plan to re-canvas the neighborhood. Police will go door-to-door re-interviewing neighbors for new clues to this old case.

North Las Vegas Officer Sean Walker said, "From tips, those leads have pretty much dried up. It's important for us to get her picture out there and re-kindle the flame inside people."  

A reminder that police have not found Everlyse still sits in the front yard of a neighbor's house. Flowers as part of a memorial in her honor stay tied to a tree. The foster parents still live next door, but continue to remain silent.

North Las Vegas Police had one conversation with them.  It was only on the day of the disappearance.

Walker said, "As far as I know, they have not cooperated with us."  

Detectives say there is no evidence of a crime, and therefore no suspects. So, officers cannot compel anyone to talk -- including the foster parents -- and this only adds to the mystery of what happened to Everlyse as well as increasing tension in the neighborhood.  

There is a $15,000 reward for tips leading to finding Everlyse Cabrera. If you have information that could help North Las Vegas Police call 1-800-THE-LOST.
