2-year-old Homestead girl found safe after AMBER Alert

HOMESTEAD, FLA. (WSVN) - Authorities have located a 2-year-old girl from Homestead after they issued an AMBER Alert.

Homestead Police detectives said Jesmine Cedillo-Ramirez went missing, Thursday. Investigators said she was last seen in the area of Krome Avenue and Northeast Ninth Street in Homestead.

Police said Jesmine was located safely at around 7:30 p.m. and have reunited the 2-year-old with her mother.

Investigators said 23-year-old Diego Cedillo-Hernandez was with Jesmine at the time she disappeared.

According to police, this incident was not an abduction but a custody issue. Cedillo-Hernandez is Jesmine’s father, but the girl does not live with him, and police said they had sufficient concern for Jesmine’s safety to issue the alert.

Detectives also said Cedillo-Hernandez is wanted for domestic battery.

Cedillo-Hernandez’s 2006 white Hyundai Azera with the Florida tag Z782JS was also located, but he remains at large, police said.
