Volunteers search for two missing children

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

Dozens of volunteers searched for two missing Detroit children in Rouge Park Saturday, near the children's home.

Charmika Elder of Southfield was among those looking for 6-year-old Kaylah Hunter and 8-month-old Kristian Justice. She came out even though she doesn't know the family.

"It could have been my two grandkids," Elder told The Detroit News.

Kaylah and Kristian's mother, Alicia Fox, was found dead Monday in a vacant house. She had been shot. Her kids have been declared missing.

Detroit 300 organized a group of searchers to cover the entirety of Rouge Park on Saturday. The volunteers fanned out across fields with waist-high grass.

Police have been searching as well, looking in vacant homes, backyards and fields. Fox's husband, Erin Justice, is jailed in Atlanta on a murder charge.
