DETROIT (AP) — Authorities say the bodies of a girl and a woman found in an abandoned, burned Detroit home could be connected to the notification issued to find a missing 4-year-old girl.

Police Chief James Craig said Saturday morning that investigators are working to determine whether the bodies discovered in the east side home appear to be those of Savannah Walker and her mother.

The AMBER Alert about Savannah was issued earlier in the morning and she was reported missing on Tuesday to authorities in Livingston County.

Craig says the connection between the cases is possible but not confirmed at this point.

Authorities say the person last seen with Savannah, a 33-year-old Detroit man, is the boyfriend of the mother. He’s described as a person of interest and considered armed and dangerous.

Michigan State Police say Savannah went missing on Feb. 16 around 4:30 p.m.

The Amber Alert remains active at this time.
