The Miami-Dade Police Department said McMillie, of Birmingham, was traveling to New York City and checked into her flight at gate D-39 after being rebooked for missing her previous flight.

“While the subject was with the gate agent, her two minor children walked away without notice to use nearby restrooms,” police said in a statement. “Once the subject noticed the children were not with her, she became irate and began to scream, demanding the gate agent to find her children.”
