    Sunrise Police are looking for two-year-old Lilly Abigail Everett who has been missing for nearly two weeks.

    According to Sunrise Police, the child may have been kidnapped by her mother, Megan Elizabeth Everett. Megan has shared custody with the child’s father Robert Baumann.

    Sunrise Police said Baumann was supposed to pick up the child on May 13th as part of a joint custody arrangement. When he arrived, Lily and Megan were nowhere to be found.

    "Carlos answers the door, which is her boyfriend, and says she moved and slams the door in my face,” Baumann said.

    Megan did leave one clue behind, a handwritten note to Carlos.

    “She said that if I let them take her and vaccinate her and brainwash her; she says I cannot let a judge tell me how to raise my daughter,” Baumann said.

    Baumann said he and Megan disagreed on many things related to rearing Lily. Baumann wanted Emily to be vaccinated, Megan did not. Robert also claimed the child was exposed to weapons in the Sunrise home.

    “I fear for her safety and I just want her to come home safe,” Robert said.

    The judge who issued the ruling on parental rights expressed concern over the environment of the Sunrise home where Lily stayed. Baumann said Everett has taken Lily to protests.

    “There was a concern with the Confederacy and the fact that they’re extremists; they’ve taken her to a protest,” Baumann said.

    An arrest warrant has since been issued for Megan. Police believe the kidnapping was planned and that Megan has taken steps to conceal her identity and conceal the child.

    “I’m hoping they’re still in the state, but I really believe she could be anywhere from Georgia to Virginia to Canada,” Baumann said.

    If you have any information about the whereabouts of Megan Everett, contact Sunrise Police at 954-746-3600 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
