Family Pleads for Answers Amid Search for Missing Doral Mother, Daughter

The brother and sister of a missing Doral mother spoke out Thursday, as the search continues for their loved one and her daughter.

Family members arrived Wednesday from Colombia to help search for 43-year-old Liliana Moreno and 8-year-old Daniela Moreno.

Lilian's brother, Eduardo, is worried sick, "I need my family. I need my sister. I need my niece."

Liliana and Daniela vanished from their Doral apartment a few days ago, leaving behind the mother's car, keys and purse.

Romy Nicolaidis was with Liliana Saturday night and is bewildered over her friend's disappearance, "That is the thing that is driving me crazy, that we don't know anything yet, but the police are working on it."

Police have been searching for the missing pair, spending several hours at a warehouse in Medley Wednesday, where the girl's father operates a business.

Investigators towed away a blue dumpster, possibly containing evidence.

Friends and relatives have made a cafe at a gas station their organizing spot. A flyer is already posted there and their plan is to plaster the Doral area with many more.

"She is like the best friend you can have. She never has a problem with anybody. She is caring," Nicolaidis said.

"At this moment I feel sad. I need some information that can help me to find them," Eduardo expressed.

The family has enlisted the help of the Missing Children Global Network, which is helping print the flyers and push for information. Even Daniela's elementary school friends are involved.

"I pray every night for her to come back. She's friendly, nice to all the kids, good student, she didn't get in trouble," said Victoria Cortez, Daniela's classmate.

Daniela's father has not been involved in her life, and only recently reconnected. Police said there are no suspects in this case, and they have not determined whether a crime has been committed, but said the circumstances are suspicious.

If you know anything about the whereabouts of Liliana and Daniela, call police immediately.
