The father of one of two missing children had voluntarily given a statement to police in Georgia; butDetroit police told WWJ there’s still no word on the whereabouts of his 6-month old son, Kristian Justice, or his sister, 6-year-old Kaylah Hunter.
The children have not been seen since late May.
While an Amber Alert has not been issued in the case of the missing children; the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children are involved in the case and Robert Lowery, who is with the group, spoke with WWJ’s Stephanie Davis.
“We have case managers assigned working with the Detroit police and the FBI and we’ve also deployed some assets from the national center to Detroit to assist in any way we can to help find these children,” said Lowery.READ MORE: Police Arrest Man Accused Of Killing 64-Year-Old Detroit Store Clerk During Robbery
Lowery said the center added the children to their list when Alicia Fox was found dead and the children missing.
“But if there are certain things that we can provide to help find the children that’s the purpose of that person being there.”
The mother of the two children ,Alicia Fox, was discovered shot to death on Monday in an abandoned home in Detroit.
