Foster was last seen January 4th. Her mother, Ciera Milton, told CW50’s Cryss Walker the 17-year-old returned home from work around 10:30 p.m. when Brazier picked her up.

Milton says they left in a white sedan with black tinted window.

He’s described as a cousin through marriage.

Foster was picked up from her home on Melrose Court in Eastpointe.
