Family of missing toddler, Bianca Jones, throws fundraiser

DETROIT (WXYZ) - On the three month anniversary of her disappearance, the family of missing toddler Bianca Jones is holding a fundraiser and awareness event in Windsor on Friday.

"I'm still keeping the faith, I still have hope," said the girl's mother, Banika Jones. "I still believe Bianca is coming home."

Bianca went missing on December 2, 2011 when her father D'Andre Lane claimed he was carjacked. The vehicle was recovered, but the 2-year-old hasn't been seen since.

While the police investigation is active and ongoing, officers have scaled back their search.

Still, Banika goes out every day armed with flyers showing the picture of her daughter. She says she's spent thousands of dollars on the flyers and on t-shirts that show the missing girl's innocent face.

Bianca's story, which made news headlines for weeks, caught the attention of Canadian singer, Kiko, who volunteered to put together a benefit for the child.

The event will be held at The Loop, also known as the FM Lounge at 156 Chaham St. at 9:00 p.m.

Live music, photography and speeches about Bianca and other endangered children will be featured.

A $10 cover charge will be collected at the door. Donations will also be accepted inside.
