Missing Child Alert issued for 4-year-old girl last seen in Miami’s Overtown neighborhood

Police believe Carolina Rodriguez Vizcarra, 4, could be with her mother who was charged with child abandonment in 2021

MIAMI – A Florida Missing Child Alert was issued for a 4-year-old girl from Miami on Tuesday, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Miami police are searching for Carolina Rodriguez Vizcarra, who was last seen on Dec. 28, 2022, in the area of the 200th block of Northwest 15th Street in Miami’s Overtown area, the FDLE said.

Detectives describe Carolina as a white-Hispanic female who is 3 feet, 1 inch tall and weighs around 27 pounds. They said she has brown hair and brown eyes.

Police believe Carolina is in the company of her mother, who police identified as 34-year-old Carolina Vizcarra Olvera.

Olvera was charged back in 2021 with child abandonment after authorities said she walked into Mercy Hospital in Miami and left her daughter with an off-duty police officer.

Police confirmed Tuesday that Carolina “may be in danger of death or serious bodily injury.”

Olvera told a judge in 2021 that she was homeless and did not want her daughter living on the streets. The child was taken into the custody of the Florida Department of Children and Families before her grandmother came forward.

Olvera had an active stay away order from her daughter and is not allowed to have any contact with her.

Authorities describe Olvera as a white-Hispanic female. They said she is 5 feet, 7 inches tall, weighs around 150 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information on Carolina’s or Olvera’s whereabouts is asked to call 911.
