(CBS) DETROIT - The cousin of missing Detroit girl Bianca Jones says he saw the 2-year-old's father the morning she was allegedly taken by a carjacker.

"(Bianca) was good. She was normal," Treveon Lane said, according to local station WDIV. "My uncle carried her to the car, and my little cousin buckled her up. She was awake."

Treveon Lane, who claimed to have just met Bianca earlier that week, says he was with his uncle D'Andre Lane, Bianca and two other children the night before and the morning Bianca's father reported her missing, WDIV reports.

D'Andre Lane claims he was carjacked the morning of Dec. 2 while Bianca sat in a rear car seat. The car was found Friday Dec. 9, but she was not in it. 

According to WDIV, Treveon Lane said his uncle took him home at 8 a.m. that morning, about two hours before D' Andre Lane called 911 to report the carjacking and that his daughter was missing.

Police have said the story told by the girl's father is under "intense scrutiny" by investigators, who have searched Lane's home several times, taking flash drives, laptops and sheets from the child's bed.

CBS Detroit reports cadaver dogs brought in to search for the 2-year-old allegedly hit on the scent of human remains in several spots linked to the toddler.
