    MI - Evelyn Baley Daniel, 4 mos, Detroit, Aug 2011

    Baby Vanishes After Detroit Custody Hearing Brawl
    Father Killed Girl's Mother Aug. 12
    POSTED: Thursday, August 18, 2011
    UPDATED: 8:16 am EDT August 19, 2011

    Evelyn Baley Daniel went missing Thursday during a custody hearing in Detroit. No Amber Alert has been issued.

    Last week, Evelyn's father, Damon Daniel, shot and killed her mother, 26-year-old Ebony Gaines. Police said Daniel called to tell them he had shot Gaines at the couple's home on Highview Street.

    The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office said it was in self-defense and that it would not file charges against Daniel. Family members have been publicly disputing that.

    A fight broke about between the couple's two families during the custody hearing. The judge granted Daniel full custody of Evelyn. However, a member of Gaine's family was asked by the judge to turn the girl over to Daniel, but she said she did not know where Evelyn was.

    Anyone with information on Evelyn's whereabouts is asked to contact the Detroit Police Department: http://www.detroitmi.gov/Departments...eStations.aspx

    4-Month-Old Baby Goes Missing Following Court Scuffle in Detroit

    Thursday, Gaines' cousin brought their four-month-old baby, Evelyn, to a custody hearing where a referee granted custody back to Daniel.

    Relatives told FOX 2 the baby disappeared soon after a scuffle inside the justice hall -- a security guard apparently passed off the baby to a relative when things ugly.

    "(There) was so much going on, (there were) so many officers, so many people, pepper spray, everything," said friend Shandela Vaughn.

    "I said, 'Where's the baby?' And everybody looked around, and I said, 'Where is the baby?' Everybody said, 'Where is the baby?' And the lady (said) the officer gave her to that lady," said Minnie Christian, the child's grandmother.

    However, no one knows that woman's identity.

    Four-month-old girl disappears during emotional custody hearing in juvenile court

    This is the latest chapter in a tragic story that started Friday in Dearborn when Damon Daniel and his girlfriend Ebony Gaines, the baby's mother, had an argument that ended with Damon shooting and killing Ebony.

    Damon was arrested but released after the prosecutor ruled the shooting was self defense .

    While he was in custody little Evelyn was with one of Ebony's relatives, Alethia Fenderson. Alethia says she brought Evelyn to court but things got out of control during the hearing.

    Alethia says that while people were yelling and moving around the baby disappeared.

    After Evelyn disappeared everyone thought a court officer took her out of the courtroom for safety

    I was told to stay inside of the courtroom and in the midst of all that my daughter was being lateraled outside of the courtroom."Gaines' mother said she thinks Evelyn is with a member of Daniel's family.

    There are about 8 previous articles about the shooting and killing of Ebony, the mom, and how the dad Damon was let go by prosecutor ruling it was self defense. I found them by googling for the mom's name, Ebony Gaines.

    I want to work on trying to find a good picture of this sweet little baby before I work on collecting those other articles though.

    ETA: Found a good pic of this gorgeous sweetie pie and added it to the first post in the thread. Oh my God, she has grabbed my heart.

    BeanE, how sure are you that the shooting was truly self-defense? Are the circumstances very clear?

    ETA: The article (from WXYZ) you posted referred to " undisclosed evidence" as the reason prosecutors believe it was self-defense. That's weird.

    I'm going by the prosecutor's ruling on that, TGIR. I'm focusing my efforts on finding the baby.

    1. was it a legal gun he used?
    2. Hard to believe a girl with two knives needed to be shot dead rather than disarmed or shot in the leg.
    3. Really???

    this is ridiculous.

    Both sides of this child's family are claiming they know nothing about the disappearance.

    Sources told us police were out late Thursday night searching for that infant and they will be visiting the homes of relatives to make sure they do not have that baby.

    Where most don't see.
    Wouldn't you think if the father has custody (if I read it right) then why would his family have her and not tell? I would think the mom's family has her somewhere. Don't you think?!
