Authorities name person of interest in missing child search

The search is still on for Carnell Chamberlain, the young Isabella County boy who has been missing since last Thursday night.

Carnell was supposed to be in the care of Anthony Bennett, the boy's mother's now ex-boyfriend, when he went missing on Thursday. The mother then called police to start the search.

Both Carnell's mother and Bennett were brought in for questioning on Friday. The mother took a polygraph test and everything looked normal. Bennett refused to take the test. According to a spokesperson from the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, "he was playing games with authorities."

Monday morning Bennett was brought in to police authorities under a different arrest warrant. There were pictures taken and he reportedly had scratches on his arms.

Bennett is not in police custody, but he is under watch.

Today they are searching three more dense wooded areas on tribal land. Canine units and horseback patrols are searching in other areas as well. Police are also back on Miller's Pond searching.

Police are still treating the investigation as a search and rescue until they know more.
