    Why was this child on the floor and not in bed???
    Why no supervision until noon???
    Much more to this story, I am afraid, and not a good outcome expected.
    Praying for this child's safety.

    Yes, it never seems to end well when the child was last seen sometime in the middle of the night, then not checked on until mid-day. Also concerning when the child is sleeping in day clothes.

    But the police are calling it an abduction. So we will see. Just hoping little Mariha is okay.

    The area she disappeared from. Highly residential.

    I don't know if this is related. Someone told me this house is about 3 miles from the missing child's home.

    Detroit police say the body of a young child was found after a house fire on the city's west site.

    Police tell The Detroit News the body was found about 8 a.m. Sunday. They say they don't yet know the age or sex of the child and are awaiting the results of an autopsy.

    Address of this house:

    The blaze began in a in a residence in the 2900 block of Waverly near Davison and Linwood Streets on the city's west side around 7:57 a.m.

    ETA: I'm getting 1.2 miles, but I'm no good with maps. Could someone double check this please?

    Well they certainly word that oddly. If there was a child living in the home at the time, they would probably say that, right? Expecting that the body would be that child?

    I hope that's not related... (Either way, a deceased child is horrible.)

    There are a staggering 73 Registered Sex Offenders within a 1-mile radius of Mariha's home.

    I've got a sick feeling about this.

    Mariha is just precious.

    "We are still trying to determine why the child was there and where the parents of the child are," said Lieutenant Duane Blackman of Detroit Police.

    The body was burned beyond recognition, according to police.

    Firefighters said the fire started in the living room, near the mattress where the child was laying down.

    A woman living nearby told police she saw a man walking out or near the house.

    Disconcerting for me also that she was sleeping on the floor, not in night clothes and there appears to be an 8 hour span of her being unaccounted for.

    I am praying she is safe somewhere, however it doesn't look good........



    MOO

    Just something else to consider, in case this turns out to be something other than what we are all thinking right now...

    Nevaeh Buchanan was kidnapped and murdered in Monroe, Michigan just over 2 years ago. Monroe is about 40 miles from Detroit. Nevaeh was also 5. Her case is still unsolved (or, at the very least, without any charges in relation to it).

    I'm not saying they're related. But close enough to think about.
