OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. -

Osceola County deputies are searching for a 23-year-old mother and her 10-month daughter who both have been missing since Monday.

Deputies said Keishauana M. Smith was last seen at her residence on Azure Isle Way with her 10-month old daughter, Neveah, and left with her father who was visiting from New York.

Smith's family became concerned when she was not returning home and that her father was returning to New York. Smith's family says she has several medical conditions that limit her caring for her daughter and deputies want to make contact with Smith to ensure her daughter is being cared for.

It's not clear what the medical conditions are.

Keishauana is described as a black female, approximately 5 feet 4 inches tall, 104 lbs with brown eyes and black hair. She walks with a limp and her left arm is paralyzed, according to deputies. Neveah is described as a black female, approximately 2'6” tall and 18 lbs.

Deputies said it's not a custody battle issue and they don't plan on issuing an Amber Alert as of Friday afternoon.

If you have information on Smith's whereabouts, call the Osceola County Sheriff's Office at (407) 348-2222 or Crimeline at (800) 423-TIPS (8477).
