Police investigating possible abduction in southwest Miami-Dade

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – An investigation is ongoing following a reported abduction in southwest Miami-Dade County.

Authorities were seen responding to a home Thursday on Southwest 48th Street and 87th Place.

According to Miami-Dade police, officers received a call at approximately 2:30 p.m. regarding an abduction.

Police said they made contact with the complainant and are actively investigating.

Officers say the situation involves an adult and two young girls, ages 2 and 4. No names or descriptions have been released other than that the adult was the children’s nanny.

Eric Ison, a roommate that lives with the woman, her husband and two children told Local 10 News that the woman abducted is the mother of two small children- who were also abducted around the same time Thursday afternoon from their home along with their nanny.

My roommates’ kids--they got abducted,” said Ison. “I checked the cameras and I see there’s many people in our driveway.”

Shortly after 9 p.m., police said the nanny and the two children had been located about two miles away from the home.

Possibly connected to all this is a Domino’s Pizza located on Northwest 22nd Avenue and 11th Street.

Thursday evening, Local 10 News’ Christian De La Rosa observed a woman arrive in an Uber, at one point yelling, “I got kidnapped.”

She was wearing a Domino’s polo shirt, indicating she may work at the restaurant.

“She was at her work at Dominos they came and took her from behind the counter and took her away it was broad daylight,” said Ison. “I don’t know how they did it.”

Moments later, she joined some of her co-workers and walked inside the business before officers arrived.

A short time later, she was escorted out by detectives and driven away.

The Domino’s, which is supposed to be open until 1 a.m., was closed throughout all this.

Detectives are still investigating how the mother of those children ended up back at the Dominos on her own is still unclear.

Authorities say the woman and her two daughters are safe and unharmed.

Anyone with information is urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

Authorities said the FBI is leading the investigation.
