A toddler has been missing for nearly 8 months. Now police need help finding her

Miami police detectives are looking for a missing toddler named Angela Marjorie Dufrene.

The problem: She reportedly has been missing for eight months and police don’t even have a picture of her.

“There is a lot we can’t say because there is a lot we don’t know,” said Kenia Fallat, a Miami police spokeswoman.

According to police, local Florida Department of Children and Families investigators recently informed city detectives that Angela — who was born April 25, 2014 — was missing. Detectives were told she was last seen sometime in November 2015.

“We are very concerned about the well-being of this child,” said Beatriz Lopez, the communications director for DCF’s southern region in an email. “The department has initiated a child protective investigation regarding the circumstances that led to the disappearance of the child, and we will continue to work closely with law enforcement.”

With very little to go on detectives are turning to the public for help.

“We are looking for people to come forward with information about the little girl,” she said. “We are hoping her name sparks a memory.”

Fallat said detectives need pictures, information about the family or a description of the child.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami Police Department’s Investigations Unit at 305-397-4795 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
