UPDATE II: Mom’s Sex Offender Friend in Custody
Earlier Monday afternoon, police detained two people for questioning in connection with Nevaeh’s disappearance.
One of the men in custody has been identified as the mother’s boyfriend, who is being held on a parole violation charge, authorities said.
“He is being cooperative,” said Detective Sgt. Heath Velliquette of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.
The second man was picked up at Heck Park during a search for the girl. The man is not from the area and deputies considered him suspicious after speaking with him. Neither man has been charged in connection with the disappearance so their names are being withheld.
Sgt. Velliquette said he is considering the case a kidnapping because of the circumstances. Nevaeh was playing with friends and reportedly was riding her bicycle in the parking lot early Sunday evening.
