DETROIT -

While baby Kristian Justice might be starting to crawl about now, his 6-year-old sister Kaylah Hunter would be getting ready to go back to school. But as far as family members know, none of that is happening right now. The children haven't been seen since May and multiple searches to find them have turned up nothing.

Their mother, Alicia Fox, was found shot to death inside a home, and her husband, Erin Justice, remains in jail in Atlanta, charged in the case.

Justice was supposed to be brought back to Detroit 30 days after being charged June 13. So what was the hold up? Sources say logistics.

The Detroit Police Department refused to transport a murder suspect by car for the 12-hour drive, but a plan is reportedly now in place.

Court insiders told Local 4 Justice is set to be extradited back to Detroit as early as Friday.
