DETROIT (AP) - Relatives of two missing Detroit siblings whose mother was found slain are calling on authorities to issue an Amber Alert amid a search for the children.
The Detroit Free Press reports Michigan State Police say, however, the case doesn't meet criteria for that kind of alert.
Six-year-old Kaylah Hunter and 8-month-old Kristian Justice were seen May 27 with their mother, Alicia Fox. Fox's decomposed body was found June 9 in a vacant Detroit house. Her husband Erin Justice was arrested in Atlanta and charged with murder.
Detroit police previously said an Amber Alert request was initiated after Fox's body was found, but it was denied. State police spokesman Lt. Michael Shaw says an Amber Alert could be issued in the future if certain new information turns up.
