Police Search Home On Detroit's East Side In Search For Missing Boy, Kidnapper [VIDEO]

DETROIT (WWJ) - Detroit police searched a home on the city's east side overnight, gathering evidence in the abduction of a 13-year-old boy who is the subject of an Amber Alert.

Investigators executed a search warrant at the home on Manistique Street and Frankfort, just south of Chandler Park and Alter Road, in search of Deontae Mitchell, who was abducted Tuesday night, and 45-year-old Gregory Walker, who is suspected of kidnapping the boy.  Neither were located at the home.

An Amber Alert for Mitchell was issued Wednesday morning. He was last seen around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday near Nino's Market on East Warren, between Outer Drive and Alter Road on the city's east side. His cousin told police the two were riding bikes when they saw an apparently drunken man drop money while urinating outside the market. The cousin said Mitchell picked up the money and they rode away.
