Update 05-31-09: 3rd Man Named Person Of Interest
Search For Missing Girl, 5, Continues
MONROE, Mich. — A third man has been named a person of interest in the case of a missing 5-year-old Monroe girl.
James Easter, 64, of Monroe was taken in for questioning Saturday.
Easter is being held on unrelated charges. Police have not said why he has been named a person of interest in the case.
Investigators would only say that Easter frequently visits a woman, who may be a family member or his girlfriend, at the Charlotte Arms apartment complex where Nevaeh Buchanan lives. She was last seen Sunday riding her scooter in the parking lot of the complex.

Update 06-05-09: A small body of a child encased in cement was found yesterday a few miles from where Nevaeh Buchanan went missing.
RAISINVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Sherry Buchanan was clinging to hope that her missing 5-year-old granddaughter was still alive, despite the chilling discovery of a child’s body near a river in southeast Michigan.
Police officers have spoken to Nevaeh Buchanan’s family and a relative told The Monroe Evening News that the child found earlier Thursday was the missing girl from Monroe. The body was found about seven miles from where Nevaeh last was seen May 24 in the parking lot of her apartment complex in nearby Monroe.
Buchanan said police told her a body had been found. But she said she wouldn’t be certain it was her granddaughter “until I see that baby’s face … I’m not giving up hope yet because it could turn out to be another baby.”
“They told me they won’t know for sure until the DNA test is in,” Buchanan said. “It hurts. It hurts not knowing.”
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Department would not comment on the case Thursday night. A news conference was planned for Friday morning.
