DETROIT – There have been multiple new developments in the disappearance of a 17-year-old from Eastpointe.
A person of interest in the case, Foster’s 21-year-old cousin, turned himself in to police Wednesday (Jan. 19) night.
Zion Foster is still missing. She is 5 feet, 1 inch tall and weighs 120 pounds, officials said. She was last seen wearing her Detroit Wing Company uniform, they said.
A private investigator has stepped in and is offering up new clues in the case.
“I am nervous about a phone call. I am nervous about a knock at the door. I am praying, pleading that it is good news,” Ciera Milton, Foster’s mother, said.
Milton said she has been living a nightmare since her daughter went missing. Foster left her home with her 21-year-old cousin that night.
Milton said she asked the cousin several times where her daughter is. She said he won’t tell her.
A private investigator out of Chicago who specializes in human trafficking contacted the Local 4 Defenders with photos of the cousin’s Acura on Jan. 10 in Detroit and Hazel Park. Then the car was spotted on Jan. 13 in Waterford but there were no photos of Foster in the car.
Detroit police said they have recovered that car and are very concerned about Foster.
