A warehouse district in Medley could hold clues in the disappearance of a Doral mother and daughter, missing since at least Sunday.

Miami-Dade and Medley police converged on a warehouse building at 10630 NW 123rd Street Rd. on Wednesday afternoon. Officers eyed one particular bay and the contents of a dumpster along with a truck parked in front, CBS4 reported.

Officers have not revealed what evidence they have found — if any.

Liliana Moreno, 43, and her daughter, Daniela, 9, came to the attention of police on Tuesday when Moreno’s sister in Colombia reported she hadn’t heard from them in days. Daniela was not in school on Friday.

Doral police went to Moreno’s apartment at 107th Avenue and Northwest 50th Street and found a locked door and her car outside. Moreno’s purse and wallet were in the apartment, but her keys were not found. Police found a cellphone inside but don’t believe it belonged to Moreno. No one is answering calls placed to Moreno’s cellphone.

The FBI has joined the investigation. Police spent two hours searching the warehouse and dumpster.

Given the amount of time the pair have been missing, along with the items left behind in the apartment, officers suspect foul play, Carlos Arango, Doral police captain, told El Nuevo Herald.

“Because there are items in the apartment such as her wallet and driver’s license it leads us to believe she may have left in a hurry. That is another reason for concern.”

Anyone with information is urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
