FLORIDA — Right now in the state of Florida, there are currently seven active AMBER Alert cases that have remained unsolved.
AMBER Alerts are emergency messages that are issued when police determine that a child has been abducted and is in imminent danger, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).
On Thursday, National AMBER Alert Awareness Day, the FDLE is asking the community to take another look at these cases in hopes of bringing loved ones home safely.
The oldest case dates back to 2000, when a Clearwater 8-year-old boy named Zachary Bernhardt disappeared from his bedroom. The most recent is the abduction of Andrew Caballeiro, who was just 1 week old when authorities said he was taken in Miami in 2020. His abductor, Ernesto Caballeiro, was found dead, but the child is still missing.
One of the AMBER Alert cases is that of a local girl. Haleigh Cummings was 5 years old when she was discovered missing from her Putnam County home on Feb. 10, 2009.
“Citizen-provided information and tips continue to prove invaluable in missing children cases throughout Florida,” FDLE Commissioner Rick Swearingen said.
Florida authorities are asking the public to review the cases provided in the photo gallery below. If you have any information that could help solve a case, contact law enforcement or dial 911.
