Volunteers search for missing children Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) - It has been one week since a Detroit mother was found murdered in an abandoned home. Since then police, family and hundreds of volunteers have been searching for her two young children.

Now, the question remains, where are 8-month-old Kristian Justice and 6-year-old Kaylah Hunter?

Authorities searched an abandoned house near Grove and Strathmoor streets Monday evening. They also went door to door to speak with neighbors.

"He just said what they were doing out here, you know, searching for the children. He said they got a tip. He didn't know if it was a hoax or not, but they had a tip that the children [were] in this area," says one of the neighbors.

Police have been searching for the kids since their mother, Alicia Fox, was found dead in an abandoned house on Penrod Street on Detroit's west side. Her body was badly decomposed.

Police believe her husband 28-year-old Erin Justice, father to her youngest child, killed Fox in late May and then asked his childhood friend, Timothy Jones, to help cover up the crime.

Jones was arraigned in 36th District Court facing a felony charge of accessory after the fact, but Justice has yet to make a local court appearance. He fled to Georgia and is fighting extradition back to Detroit. He's charged with several felonies including first-degree murder.

His next court appearance is scheduled for June 25th.

Meanwhile, police in Detroit keep searching.

A family member says volunteers are invited to help search for the children Thursday, June 17. The search group will meet at 10 a.m. at Joy Road and Trinity Street where they will search grids three and four of Rouge Park.

Volunteers are asked to wear pink and white or pink and black.
