DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – The Wayne County prosecutor says she’ll decide “very, very soon” whether to file charges in the disappearance of a 2-year-old Detroit girl who has been missing since early December.
Detroit police asked for an arrest warrant in mid-December, two weeks after Bianca Jones was reported missing by her father during an alleged carjacking on the city’s east side. The car was recovered, but not the child.
“If you know anything about me at all, you know that we are very thorough and deliberate on every case, no matter how quick the charges are,” she
said. “Sometimes we can charge quickly, sometimes it takes more time, but we will have a decision for you on that very, very soon.”Worthy briefly talked about the case Tuesday during a news conference about other matters.
Police have been skeptical of D’Andre Lane’s version of events, but he has denied wrongdoing. In an interview with Talkradio 1270 host Charlie Langton, Lane said he is cooperating with police and hoping for his daughter’s safe return.
Lane said he wants people to focus on finding his daughter, and not the “negative things that are being put out there.” (Listen to that interview here).
