DETROIT -

Police and volunteers are continuing their search for 2-year-old Bianca Jones who has been missing since Friday.

Early Tuesday morning, Federal agents, State Police and Detroit Police officers raided father, Dandre Lane's, home on Detroit's east side. It marked the second time in 2 days that police have searched for evidence inside the house.

Lane told police he was carjacked Friday morning and that the thieves took of with Bianca still strapped in the back seat of the car.

Authorities have recovered the car with an empty child seat.

Detroit police Chief Ralph Godbee says investigators question the truthfulness of Lane's story.

The Oakland County jail released Lane Monday.

Defense lawyer Terry L. Johnson says reports Lane isn't aiding police are untrue.

Johnson says his client will continue helping investigators and hopes for his daughter's safe return.

Michigan prison records show Lane was imprisoned three years in a 2003 drug and firearms case and also has a robbery conspiracy conviction.
