DETROIT (WXYZ) - As Wayne County Sheriff's deputies joined the search to find two-year-old Bianca Jones, the attorney for the toddler's father says he's told police that his client is still willing to cooperate with the investigation.
Bianca Jones has been missing for six days now and Sheriff Benny Napoleon deployed about thirty deputies to search fields and abandoned homes in hopes of bringing her back home safely.
“No child should ever be taken away from his or her parent and the people who love them as a result of violence. We want this precious child returned to her home immediately and will do what we can to assist the effort,” said Sheriff Benny N. Napoleon.
Deputies met with Detroit Police Department officials and were given designated areas to search.
The police-coordinated volunteer search will continue Friday and Saturday at Metropolitan United Methodist Church located at 8000 Woodward Ave. For Sunday, the search efforts will be headquartered out of the Detroit Police Central Station located at 4747 Woodward. Each day, searchers will be escorted by police officers beginning at 10 a.m. with the last groups heading out around 3 p.m. to search until 5:00.

Like so many around the world, Nelson Mandela's story captured the heart and imagination of a Detroit area photographer. Years later, she would capture some of Mandela's most magical milestones.
When he was released from prison, Nelson Mandela went on a tour in the U.S. but he only visited 11 cities. Detroit was one of them. He spoke at Tiger Stadium on June 28, 1990.
Reaction is pouring in from around the world to the death of Nelson Mandela.
