Riviera police: Missing twins considered endangered, not kidnapped’

RIVIERA BEACH — 10:40 a.m., update: The search for the missing 8-month-old twins from Riviera Beach is complicated by the fact that they are believed to be with their biological father — who has the same rights as their mother to be with the children.

Riviera Beach Police spokeswoman Rose Anne Brown called it a technicality, saying it will affect whether charges are filed against 34-year-old Carlos Peavy. The babies are considered endangered, not kidnapped.

But police continue to search for the twins because the children’s mother believes her son and daughter may be in danger.

ORIGINAL POST: The search continued Wednesday morning for the missing 8-month-old Riviera Beach twins who police say may have been taken by their father, Carlos Peavy.

Peavy was supposed to meet the Marjor and Cariyah’s mother, Charmal Williams, with the children Monday night at a Wal-Mart. But he never showed up, Williams told reporters Tuesday night.

“I just really wish you would bring my kids back to me,” Williams said during a news conference at the Riviera Beach police station at the Port Center building. “They need their mother. I just wish I had them in my presence to just do everything for them right now.”

Investigators think 34-year-old Peavy may have taken his son and daughter out of Florida. Riviera Beach police spokeswoman Rose Anne Brown said city police are working with other law-enforcement agencies to find the twins.

The twins were last seen near the intersection of North Military Trail and Knox Avenue, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. They may be traveling in a cream-colored Infiniti Fx35 with Florida tag number Y01KSP.

Peavy may face charges, Brown said.

Williams said she hasn’t had disputes with Peavy about the children. However, one of Peavy’s ex-girlfriends told Williams that he had recently spoken of being tired of their relationship and was plotting to take the children, Williams said.

Police say Peavy is 5 foot 10 and 240 pounds, with black hair, brown eyes and facial hair.
