RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. -- A multi-state search is underway for 8-month old twins from Riviera Beach, believed to be with their father.

Riviera Beach Police say 34-year-old Carlos Peavy likely left the area with the twins, Major and Cariyah Peavy, and they haven’t been seen since Monday evening.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Carlos Peavy on a charge of Interference With Custody.

Major Peavy was last seen wearing an orange and blue onesie and Cariyah Peavy was last seen wearing a pink onesie.

The twins and Peavy were last seen near the 5800 block of North Military Trail at the Intown Suites. 

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement says Peavy and the twins could be traveling in a 2003, cream Infiniti Fx35 with the Florida tag number Y01KSP.

The twins’ mother, Charmal Williams, says she believes her boyfriend, Peavy, may have been plotting for some time to take the twins away. “I spoke to people who said he’s been plotting to take my kids. He’s been talking to people telling them he was going to take my babies,” Williams said.

She just wants to know that they are safe, and being fed and cared for.

“I have most of their clothes. I don’t know how he’s feeding them because I have their card to get all of their formula and stuff. I don’t know how he’s providing for them right now,” Williams said.

Williams says she has been living at the Intown Suites with Carlos and the babies. 

Williams and Peavy share custody of the twins.

Williams says there was no indication that Peavy had plans to leave. “There were no arguments. Nothing. He just left,” Williams said.

Williams last spoke to Peavy Monday evening. She said Peavy asked her to meet him and the babies at a nearby Walmart. She says that was an unusual request.

“He was supposed to meet me at Walmart, but he turned off his phone and never showed up to Walmart,” Williams said.

Williams says no one she knows has heard from him in the last 24-hours.

Williams is pleading for help bringing her children home safely.

“I just really wish you would bring my kids back to me. They need their mother.”

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement says Peavy and the twins could be traveling in a 2003, cream Infiniti Fx35 with the Florida tag number Y01KSP.
