Search continues for mother of 2 who went missing in Miami Gardens

MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - As days continue to pass, Miami Gardens Police have no updates on Kameela Russell’s whereabouts.

The 41-year-old, a mother of two girls, has been missing since Wednesday night.

Police have since put together a flier with her information and picture in the neighborhood where she was last seen.

Her family said she was last seen along Northwest 203rd Street on Wednesday night when her car pulled into her aunt’s driveway to pick up her 6-year-old daughter.

“I looked out the window. I thought I saw Kameela’s car in the driveway,” said her aunt, Donna Blyden.

Blyden said, just seconds later – before she had a chance to pick up her daughter – the 2014 black Audi A6 was gone with her niece in it.

“I text her and I said, ‘Where are you?’ I said, ‘You were in the driveway just now, and now you’re not here. Where are you?'” said Blyden. “I didn’t get an answer.”

Police said there has been no trace of Russell since.

Russell works at Miami Norland Senior High School as a test chairperson and was said to be at work the day she went missing. They hope it will jog someone’s memory and they will call with information.

Detectives from the Miami Gardens Police Department are working with Miami-Dade Schools Police in the investigation. Officials said they have not ruled out foul play.

Her family said, it’s not like her to vanish without contacting them.

““She’s got two girls, and they need to have their mom,” said Blyden.

Students at Miami Norland Senior High said they are just as troubled by Russell’s disappearance. They said they can’t believe she’s been missing for so long and hope she is found soon.

“It’s very crazy. I used to see her around a lot, always a smile. It was a real shock to see her missing and everything,” said student Jamal Moss. “I’m very concerned. I hope she’s like OK, and they find her soon.”

Police said she stands 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighs around 165 pounds, has brown eyes and was last seen wearing her black and purple colored hair with braids.
