It's been three days and still no sign of 12-year-old Samantha Detzler. She's the Lansing girl police believe voluntarily walked away from a relatives home Saturday night.
There's been no Amber Alert and no plea to police agenices in neighboring states but flyers have been posted and now FBI agents and consultants from the National Center for Missing & Exploited children are helping work the case.
Joe Newport, with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, says his agency is providing information from databases and talking with Samantha's parents. Lansing Police Detective Bruce Lankheet says the investigation is ongoing, they're pushing it very hard. There's been no information to suggest Samantha may be in another state and they have been receiving tips but she's still missing. Meantime, Amber's mother is talking with Samantha's friends and family members but no one has heard from her.
If you have any information on Samantha's whereabouts, please call 1-800-THE-LOST or the Lansing Police Department. Samantha's family is also asking for help with the cost of color copies in order to make more flyers. Contact the Lansing Police Department if you would like to help.
