The Fort Lauderdale Police Department is asking for the public's help in locating a missing child taken by her father against a court order.
According to authorities, 23-month-old Carlyssa Pasquet was in the custody of her grandmother at her home in the 200 block of Southwest 20th Street.
Around 2:30 p.m. Friday, Carlos Pasquet, the girl's 39-year-old father, arrived at the home and took her without the grandmother's knowledge. He is only allowed supervised visitation with Carlyssa, according to authorities.
Carlos is described as approximately 5'9 tall and 195 pounds, with tattoos on both arms and gold teeth. He was last seen wearing a gray shirt with "Sherwin Williams" printed in blue lettering, black pants, and white and black sneakers.
Carlyssa was last seen wearing a teal flower shirt and green pants.
Authorities say it is not believed Carlos might act dangerously towards the girl, but he "is not properly equipped to care for the child" and is in violation of a court order.
Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of the girl or her father is encouraged to contact The Fort Lauderdale Police Department at (954) 764-HELP (4357).
