Prosecutor in Bianca Jones' disappearance to announce possible charges
(CBS/WWJ/AP) DETROIT - The Wayne County prosecutor is scheduled to announce on Wednesday whether or not charges will be filed in the disappearance of two-year-old Bianca Jones, who has been missing since early December.
Prosecutor Kym Worthy is scheduled to make the announcement during a 2 p.m. news conference Wednesday, CBS Detroit reports.
Detroit police asked for an arrest warrant in mid-December, two weeks after the two-year-old was reported missing by her father, D'Andre Lane, who said the child was snatched in a carjacking. The car was recovered but Bianca was never found.
Police have been skeptical of Lane's version of the events, but he has denied wrongdoing. Worthy has said her office was giving the case a very thorough look.
Lane is currently being held in the Oakland County Jail on an unrelated matter. He will remain there for 14 days for violating a personal protection order, reports CBS Detroit.
The missing girl's mother, Banika Jones, says she still hopes for her daughter's safe return.
"I just hope that all of this leads eventually to Bianca coming home. And that's all I can put my faith in right now, is that eventually all of this is will get Bianca home, and that's all I really want," she CBS Detroit.
