"If the detective sees this, fine, let him see it. Monroe County is not doing their job," Sherry Buchanan said.

Nevaeh Buchanan was last seen playing outside an apartment complex in Monroe before her body was discovered encased in concrete near the River Raisin.

Sherry Buchanan said she keeps evidence bags at her home because they give her comfort.
