    The family of 24-year-old Trukita Scott is asking for the public’s help after she went missing two days ago. Trukita’s parents said they knew something was wrong when she didn’t show up to pick up her kids from day care.

    The family told NBC 6 they believe they know who has their daughter.

    “I know he has my child,” Trukita’s mom Kengeral Allen Scott said of her daughter’s ex-boyfriend Carl Watts. “Because of the threats he made against my child. He is constantly following her. Told her if he couldn’t have her, no one else would.”

    The family was first alerted when Trukita never showed up for her children. Her fiancé received the call from the school that no one had picked up the children.

    “I was hoping by the time I got there maybe she woke up and went and got the kids and we’d run into each other,” Trukita’s fiancé Al Livingston said. “Nothing. Went home. Checked the house. Nothing out of place. She could have went off joy riding, but she would’ve took them.”

    Watts is no stranger to the family or to law enforcement. Just a few weeks ago, he was shown on surveillance allegedly trying to kidnap a high school girl from a bus stop in Fort Lauderdale. Watts also has three previous kidnapping charges and Trukita’s family said they can’t find any sign of him.

    “We spoke to him briefly,” Trukita’s father Charles Scott said. “He hung up the phone. He wouldn’t answer the phone. He hasn’t checked about his son. He took off.”

    If you have any information that might help find Trukita, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
