Mother charged after false report of toddler missing


East Point police have charged a mother who they said falsely reported her child missing Tuesday.

Cyndi Cuffie, 28, reported her 3-year-old daughter, Kamile Shorter, missing from Elizabeth Lane according to police.

The toddler was later found safe at a daycare shortly before 8 p.m.

Police said Kamile's mother told them the girl had been playing outside when she disappeared. However, police said the mother dropped the girl off at the daycare before she reported the girl missing.

Daycare workers saw social media reports that the girl was missing and called authorities.

Police charged Cuffie with false statements to police which is a felony.

The little girl is in state custody.
