Family: Detroit girl subject of Amber Alert is safe

Aunt of Iyana Oldham says girl was at birthday party

DETROIT - A Detroit girl who was the subject of an Amber Alert Monday morning is safe.

Local 4 was there at 6:30 a.m. when a family member brought 5-year-old Iyana Oldham to a police station -- unharmed.

A woman who said she is Iyana's aunt told Local 4 the girl was at a birthday party and accused the girl's mother of making a story up about her disappearance.

"This was blown out of proportion," the aunt said. "She was at my house, she had a party."

An Amber Alert was issued earlier Monday morning for Iyana.

Police originally said Iyanna had been taken by her mother's ex-boyfriend -- 33-year-old Desmond Johnson.

Police said Iyana's mother had told them Johnson called her saying he was going to kill the child.

Johnson is described as black, 6 feet 1 inch tall, 160 pounds with dark eyes and black hair.

He has a tattoo of a sun on his left arm with the word "Kimora" inside of it.

The FBI was involved in the search.

Investigators said they are still looking to question Johnson about the ordeal.
