The Sean Phillips trial continues into the eighth day in Ludington. The the 21-year-old is accused in the disappearance of his baby daughter Kate.
Detective Michael Kenney with the Mason County Sheriff's Office testified for the Prosecution Wednesday.
He questioned Ariel Courtland the evening Baby Kate went missing. Ariel told him she got out of Phillips' car to get a stroller and that was when she says he took off with Kate.
Detective Kenney obtained search warrants for Phillips' car, home, and cell phone. He testified that Ariel's cell and wallet were left in Phillips' car, critical evidence he needed.
Ariel's belongings were found in the trunk, but her cell phone was not located and to this day is still missing.
Kenney says even though Ariel was using different cell phones that day, he can track her whereabouts on June 29.
When Phillips' phone was located in his bedroom, it had 100 incoming messages and 3 outgoing messages. Kenney testified that cell phone records could not determine where Phillips was that entire day.
