Is this innocent little girl dead or alive? It's the question that continues to captivate the city of Detroit.

And when you see the new interviews our Jason Mattera just conducted, your opinion of the high-profile case may totally change.

It was a headline-grabbing case in Detroit that all started when a 2-year-old girl was reported missing.


It's a chilling mystery that begins on a cold winter morning in Detroit in November 2011.

D'Andre Lane and his youngest child Bianca are driving to the home of her mother, Banika Jones. D'Andre needs to pick up some more clothes for the toddler to wear while she's temporarily staying with him.

"He was trying to give me more room to work during the day, so he was keeping her for me for a couple of weeks," said Bianca's mother Bankika Jones.

But only D'Andre would make it to Banika's house.

"He was crying or hysterical or whatever, for a long time," Lilia Jones-Weaver, Bianca's grandmother, testified in court.

Banika's not there, but her mother Lilia, brother Gerry and his girlfriend Mary are, and they are horrified by the sight of D'Andre at the door.

"He would just start blubbering there for a long time," Bianca's uncle Gerry Weaver Jr. testified.

Distraught and incoherent, with no car and no Bianca anywhere in sight.

"He wouldn't answer me. I kept asking him questions, what happened, what's going on, where's the baby? Where's Bianca?" Lilia Jones-Weaver said on the stand in court.

D'Andre, also known as "Dre," eventually says he's been carjacked, and that the carjackers fled with Bianca still in the back seat.

"He was just like, 'They got her.' He just kept repeating it, and I'm like 'Tell me who,'" said Gerry Weaver. "I was trying to get more information out of him."

Mary calls 911. D'Andre can be heard crying as Mary hands him the phone.

Operator: "You have to talk to me, sweetie. You have to talk to me. I don't -- I can't help you if you don't talk to me. What kind of car is it?"

D'Andre can't speak. He's sobbing and moaning. Mary tries to help the operator get information out of him. D'Andre tries again.

Operator: "Did they have a weapon?"

D'Andre: "What happened to my baby?"

Mary and Gerry then call Bianca's mom Banika to tell her the shocking news.

"And I was just crying on the corner, and I couldn't believe it," said Banika Jones.

Police extract more details about the alleged carjacking from D'Andre Lane after they arrive at the house.

"So the car pulled up, and he's honking his horn at me, and I hear somebody saying, 'Your back lights are out, your back lights are out,'" D'Andre Lane tells Crime Watch Daily in a phone interview from prison.

D'Andre tells me in an exclusive Crime Watch Daily telephone interview what he says he told investigators.

"I pulled over to the side to get out and check and see what was going on with the car," said D'Andre. "The car that blew the horn at me stopped behind me and a black male, got out, brandished a firearm and told me to get the f--- away from the car. I just remember pleading and asking with him to let me get my daughter out of the car. 'Let me get my baby out of the car.'

"The guy got in the car, drove off. I tried to run after him. I couldn't keep up with him," D'Andre said.

And D'Andre tells Crime Watch Daily a second man drove away in the carjacker's red sedan.

"The next thing that I remember was me getting to her mother's house," D'Andre said.

Police quickly find D'Andre's car about a mile from where he says he was carjacked, with a door open and the engine still running. But there's no Bianca in her baby seat.

"I didn't understand why somebody would, why would they take my daughter? Why?" said Banika Jones.

A carjacking has now become a possible kidnapping, a federal crime that brings the FBI into the investigation and the search for Bianca.

"Please, please, just bring my daughter home. That is all I want. Just please bring my daughter home," Banika pleaded on camera during the search.

The child's mother and her older daughter Bella make heartbreaking pleas to Bianca's kidnappers too. And other family members, friends and volunteers help authorities scour the neighborhood for the missing toddler.

"I'm praying that she is still with us, because I want to see that little girl again," said Gerry Weaver Jr.

"I just don't think this is real. It just does not feel real, and I'm hoping to wake up and she'll be there," said Banika.

But searchers find no trace of Baby Bianca or her kidnappers, and police think her father is lying.

"We've been doing this for 24 hours, and the things that you said have not been verified one bit," a detective tells D'Andre Lane in a recorded interrogation.

And Detroit detectives accuse D'Andre Lane of lying to them about what happened to his 2-year-old daughter.

"Initially we believed you. Yeah, we did. Until the case was investigated and it's like, 'Wait a minute. Dre's full of s---,'" the detective says in the interrogation.

Investigators had begun to grow suspicious the moment they found D'Andre's allegedly hijacked car abandoned -- with no Bianca inside.

Before this interrogation, detectives had already learned D'Andre Lane, 32, has a long rap sheet dating back to age 18 when he'd been sentenced to four years' probation for assault with intent to commit armed robbery. He'd since been arrested numerous times on drugs and firearms charges, with one conviction landing him behind bars for more than three years.

Now police have discovered D'Andre has an outstanding warrant for violating a protective order taken out by his ex-wife, and he's held in custody.

"And as far as I'm concerned, the police at that point had really made up their mind that 'You're our guy and we're gonna get you,'" said defense attorney Terry Johnson.

Detectives accuse D'Andre of concocting the carjacking story to cover up the murder of his daughter Bianca.

"Nobody jacked you for that f---ing car. You walked away from the car, and was like, 'What the f--- happened? What the f--- do I do? What the f--- do I say?'" says the detective in the interrogation.

But D'Andre insists he's telling the truth.

"They took my child. This is what happened, and you all have to understand this. They took my child. I've tried to help as much as I can, but I'm not gonna sit here and let you all accuse me of something. I didn't do nothing with my baby, man. I didn't do nothing to my child," D'Andre says in the recorded interrogation.

As detectives continue to grill D'Andre about Bianca's mysterious disappearance, other investigators are looking at every aspect of his life.

"They wanted to know about D'Andre. 'Tell us more about D'Andre,'" said Banika Jones, Bianca's mother.

Among those they interview is Bianca's mother Banika Jones.

"They wanted to know about his ex wife, they wanted to know about his girlfriends, they wanted to know about his house where he lived, the woman he lives with," said Banika Jones.

Investigators discover that as well as being an ex-convict, D'Andre is also a notorious ladies' man.

And that Bianca is just one of seven children he'd fathered with seven different women.

"So when you put all of this together, you start to make moral decisions," said D'Andre Lane's defense attorney Terry Johnson.

That's what Terry Johnson claims the police did.

"You will be forgiven. Just let us know where she is so we can put her at peace," the detective says to D'Andre.

"I don't think anyone can come forth and tell you what a horrific father he was," said Johnson.

In fact, D'Andre is said to have always been a good father in many ways, actively involved in raising and caring for all seven of his kids.

"I think if you talk to any of the mothers of his children, none of them had an issue with D'Andre. All of them said he was a great dad," said Terry Johnson.

"He always tried to be there. He made sure I had whatever I wanted," D'Andre Lane Jr.

D'Andre's eldest son D'Andre Junior says his father was there for his other kids too.

"We're his biggest priority. He put us before him," said D'Andre Jr.

And D'Andre's sister Shalice says he was trying to turn his life around, returning to school to study real estate for the sake of his younger kids.

"At that time, he was in college, focused on taking care of his kids," said D'Andre's sister Shalice Ravenell.

But D'Andre is known to have been a strict disciplinarian as a parent.

"He did time-outs," said D'Andre's live-in fiancée Anjali Lyons. "Like, 'Go stand in the corner for like 30 seconds, or come sit down. This is why I did this. Now we're fine.'"

Anjali Lyons, who has a 4-year-old daughter with him, says he'd sometimes give them a smack as well. "Spanking," Lyons said.

And investigators would learn that D'Andre had spanked Bianca the night before she disappeared, paddling her with a home-made padded and taped stick after the 2-year-old wet the bed while D'Andre was trying to potty-train her.

D'Andre admits he paddled Bianca, but denies detectives' suggestions that he harmed her.

"How are you saying I abused Bianca? I did not abuse my daughter, man," said D'Andre in the interrogation.

D'Andre's nephew Treveon Lane-Trammell, who was 15 at the time, was staying over at his uncle's that evening, says he saw him spank Bianca in the living room.

"He patted her with the paddle, and then we played around a little bit. He hit me with the paddle, but we was playing, you know. I ain't see it as odd or nothing," Treveon tells Crime Watch Daily. "It wasn't physical abuse."

But D'Andre's fiancée claims she heard him paddling Bianca in the child's bedroom, telling investigators:

"I told them that I heard a shriek and nothing afterward," Lyons said.

Detectives allege that's because D'Andre had just potty-trained Bianca to death.

"That's the face of a man that says 'I f---ed up and I don't want to go to prison,'" a detective says to D'Andre during the recorded interrogation.

At this point, D'Andre is about to lose it.

Detective: "That's the face of a f---ing coward who killed a little girl."

D'Andre: "F--- you man!" as he stands up in anger.

Detective: "You know where your daughter is."

D'Andre: "I don't know! I told you, I don't know!"

Detective: "You know what happened!"

D'Andre would, in fact, fail a polygraph test, which his defense attorney claims was faulty.

"Well, I'm not going to say that those were the results. I'm just saying that the polygraph, the way it was administered, was inaccurate," said D'Andre's defense lawyer Terry Johnson.

D'Andre also has a witness who says he couldn't have killed Bianca that night, because he saw the little girl alive the next morning.

"I remember him bringing her in there, putting her coat on right next to me," said D'Andre's nephew Treveon Lane-Trammell.

Was she alive?

"Yeah. Very much," said Treveon. "I remember like it was yesterday. I remember that part."

Treveon says his uncle strapped Bianca in her child seat in the car, dropped him and another of his daughters at school, and continued on with Bianca to pick up some clothes for her at her mom's home.

At this point the prosecution says Bianca is deceased -- basically a corpse.

"That's what they saying, but I remember, I know for a fact when I left the house she was alive. I know that for a fact, because -- honestly, you know, I'm 15, I done seen a dead body, I know if somebody's alive or not," said Treveon.

But police have their own witness: an old friend named Rico Blackwell, who claims Bianca wasn't even in the car when D'Andre pulled over to say hello on his way to the house.

Detective: "Rico said he didn't see a baby in the car."

D'Andre: "But I showed him Bianca. I don't know why he would say something like that."

Detectives have been grilling D'Andre Lane repeatedly for two days about the mysterious disappearance of his baby daughter Bianca.

"That s--- you told us about a carjacking never occurred," a detective tells D'Andre in a recorded interrogation. "Sorry bro. It didn't happen."

Now cops are accusing him of murdering Bianca, and they plead with D'Andre to confess, tell them how he did it, and what he did with her body.

"Baby girl needs to come home," the detective says. "She needs to be buried and have a funeral and put in peace."

But D'Andre won't break.

D'Andre: "I don't want to talk to you no more. I don't want to talk to you. My baby's not dead. My baby's out there."

Detective: "You know you put your baby in the grave."

D'Andre: "No. No. No. No. No."

But they come up empty, except for a tiny spot of Bianca's blood found on her pillow. And lab reports show even that paddling stick came back clean.

"Now, if there's this violent killing that's going on, you would expect to see some kind of decomposition, some kind of blood or something or other," said Terry Johnson, D'Andre Lane's defense attorney.

And no blood is found in the car D'Andre says was hijacked with his little girl still strapped in her baby seat. So police have no choice but to free D'Andre after holding him for three days on an unrelated warrant.

"I had nothing to do with my daughter's disappearance. I would never harm my children. My children are my life," D'Andre Lane told Crime Watch Daily affiliate WXYZ-TV.

D'Andre publicly proclaims his innocence, and talks to WXYZ about the night police believe he potty-trained Bianca to death.

"I might have popped her on the butt, you know, 'You're supposed to go to the potty,' you pop her on the butt, she goes to the potty, 'OK Daddy, go to the potty,'" said D'Andre.

He says he used the same padded paddling stick to also discipline his other kids.

"It's not anything that would like hurt them or anything like that. It's basically just to get their attention, like, 'You know you're not supposed to be doing that -- pop -- Don't do that no more,'" D'Andre said.

And D'Andre accuses police of putting one and one together and getting three.

"They're trying to make all this stuff out to be more than what it is," said D'Andre. "I don't have belts. I'm trying to discipline them. I don't want to hurt them in any kind of way."

But D'Andre fails to change the minds of many of Bianca's relatives, who, like the police, still suspect he killed his baby daughter.

"Maybe he, you know, was disciplining her and probably hit her too hard or something. I don't know," said Gerry Weaver Jr., Bianca's uncle.

"I hope, I really do hope, that I am wrong about everything that I think about him. I really do. But honestly, I just don't believe him," said Renee Dillahunt, Bianca's aunt.

Nor does Nancy Grace, when D'Andre and his attorney Terry Johnson go on national TV to plead their case.

One of the few speaking out in D'Andre's defense is his eldest son D'Andre Junior.

"Everybody's got negative opinions about my dad, but like I said, they don't know him like I do. Can't nobody tell me nothing about my father. He's not gonna harm none of his children, especially over discipline. He disciplined all of us in the right way," said D'Andre Lane Jr.

But then, a shocking revelation: Police say a cadaver dog picked up the scent of human decomposition in Bianca's bedroom and on her child car seat.

"I believe he sat or barked or something like that," said Terry Johnson.

D'Andre's attorney Terry Johnson dismisses it, claiming it doesn't mean anything because the dog didn't find Bianca's body.

"And my question was, How do you know didn't have to go to the bathroom? How do you know he wasn't hungry? How do you know he didn't see a female dog that he was attracted to? I don't know," said Terry Johnson.

But the cadaver dog hits provide police with enough evidence to finally arrest D'Andre Lane for allegedly beating his daughter Bianca to death.

"Today we are charging Mr. Lane with first-degree felony murder and one count of child abuse in the first degree," said Wayne County Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy at a press conference.

At D'Andre Lane's trial, his defense attorney Terry Johnson scoffs at the prosecution's case.

"There's not a crime scene anywhere. They've got their star witness who went 'Woof,'" said Johnson.

One of the defense's star witnesses would be none other than Bianca's mother Banika, who stands by her baby's father.

"When he disciplined Bianca, was that something that caused you to be shocked at the way he disciplined her?" Banika Jones was asked in court.

"No," she replied.

"OK. Would it be any different than any way you've disciplined her in the past?"

"No," Banika testified.

And Banika surprises the court when she testifies she told police she didn't believe D'Andre killed their daughter.

"And you believe that your child is alive and still missing, correct?" Banika is asked in court.

"Absolutely," Banika replies. "My daughter's out there. She's out there."

But another woman in D'Andre's life would plunge a stake through his heart for the prosecution.

"Who did you hear crying?" Anjeli Lyons, D'Andre's fiancée, was asked in court.

"Bianca," said Lyons.

D'Andre's fiancée Anjali Lyons gives devastating testimony about the night he is alleged to have paddled Bianca to death.

The judge says to Anjali on the stand: "'Was there anything different about the crying you heard that morning?' Answer: 'Yeah, painfully cried, like she was really intensely in pain.'"

"I don't involve myself in the disciplinary action," Anjali replied.

But now the defense is about to drop another bombshell of its own.

It's a twist that could turn this case on its head.

What if little Bianca Jones was not murdered? What if she really is just missing and alive somewhere else?

Banika's belief that Bianca really was abducted during a carjacking, just like D'Andre says, is supported in another courtroom bombshell from retired cop Niki Gibbs, who was on patrol for the Detroit Police Department when she claims she saw Bianca alive. And that was just a little more than a week after D'Andre is alleged to have murdered the child.

"I kind of looked again and said 'Wait a minute,'" Gibbs said on the stand.

Niki Gibbs, now retired from the force, says she had been called to a home to investigate a reported disturbance.

"And then as we were in the course of just speaking random, this baby comes out of the room," Gibbs tells Crime Watch Daily.

Gibbs says it didn't occur to her at the time that the child might be Bianca.

"It wasn't until two days later when hindsight hit you that you figured out it was Bianca Jones?" Gibbs was asked in court.

"That is correct," Gibbs answered.

Gibbs says that's when she just happened to see a photo of the missing toddler on her computer.

"I said 'That's the little girl that was in that house,'" said Gibbs on the stand.

Right down to the distinctive hairdo.

"And she had cornrows, French braids, and they were pulled in two ponytails with beads on the end, and she came out like this [hands to cheeks], like she was crying," Gibbs tells Crime Watch Daily.

Gibbs immediately reported the sighting to detectives handling Bianca's case, only to be told they were already convinced the child was dead.

"Yeah, it was as a matter of fact: She's dead," said Gibbs.

The prosecution still hammers away at the retired officer for not reporting the alleged sighting the day it happened.

But Gibbs remains convinced it was Bianca.

"That was the child, yes," Gibbs says. "There was no doubt in my mind."

Several other people would also report seeing Bianca alive since her disappearance.

One of them is Michael Salisbury, a court-appointed investigator for D'Andre's defense, who followed up on Niki Gibbs' alleged sighting.

"So I went up there and saw the child with my own eyes," said Salisbury.

Salisbury says he had no doubt it was Bianca, but there was something strange and different about the child.

"A little girl dressed up as a little boy with her eyebrows shaved," said Salisbury. "I mean, one of the distinct characteristics of Baby Bianca was her thick bushy eyebrows. And even with the shaved eyebrows, to me, that was the little girl."

And did it register right away, that's Bianca?

"It did to me, yes," said Salisbury. "As soon as I saw the little girl, I knew."

Salisbury asked police to get a search warrant for the house -- but like Niki Gibbs, he says they brushed him aside.

"They look at you like you're crazy, or you don't know what you're talking about," said Salisbury. "They don't want to hear it.

"Sometimes with the police and even with the prosecutors, they think 'We've got our man, we don't want to hear nothing else,'" said Salisbury. "They just ignore you."

No warrant was issued.

Amazingly, the defense didn't put Salisbury on the stand, and admits it may have been a bad mistake because there would be no further testimony about Bianca possibly being alive, leaving the prosecution plenty of room to continue to say D'Andre lied to cover up her murder.

"The defendant is going to have you believe that two carjackers turned from carjackers to child abductors in a six-block ride," said Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Carin Goldfarb in court.

And in a dramatic courtroom moment, the child's grandmother -- Banika's mother -- stops to confront D'Andre after stepping down from the witness stand, reportedly saying: "Where is she? Tell me where she is."

"She told me that she would tell them anything she thought would hurt him," said Banika Jones. "She just doesn't like him. She has never liked him."

But D'Andre's defense would argue there was no proof Bianca was dead.

"So I focused the jury on the fact, 'Show me a body before you can go down a road of conviction,'" said Terry Johnson.

D'Andre's fate hangs in the balance as the jury returns to deliver its verdict: Guilty of one count of felony murder of Bianca Jones.

"I'm not going to say I was shocked. I was just hurt, you know, I hurt for that guy," said Terry Johnson.

And D'Andre tells me in a telephone interview that he was furious.

"You're telling me in a situation where you don't have a confession, a body, or any form of evidence that I'm guilty. How is that justice? How is that fair?" D'Andre Lane said to Crime Watch Daily.

Then Judge Vonda Evans unloads on D'Andre before sentencing him to life in prison without parole for first-degree felony murder and first-degree felony child abuse of his daughter.

"You figured that a city plagued by violence, Who would care about the disappearance of your child? But you were wrong," said Judge Vonda Evans. "You were wrong."

But D'Andre fires back at the judge and jury.

"You are the only ones who say she's dead," D'Andre said in the courtroom. "No one got on the stand and said she was dead. No one said they found evidence to prove she was dead. My daughter is alive. She is missing. She will be found."

And D'Andre has one parting shot for Judge Evans as he's led away.

"I called her a liar," D'Andre tells Crime Watch Daily.

Judge Evans is furious.

"Bring him back out here," Judge Evans said at the time.

And she has the final word.

"It's very unfortunate that you made that statement," Judge Evans says to Lane. "But I'm only going to attribute it to the fact that you're a person that is suffering very deeply. Take him out of here. Tae him out."

But while D'Andre Lane's trial is over, the mystery of what happened to Bianca only grows deeper and darker.

"My daughter's murderer, quote-unquote, has been convicted, but she's not even legally dead," said Banika.

D'Andre Lane was convicted of killing his 2-year-old girl, even though a body was never found. And some people think that there's a reason for that. They believe she's still alive.

Now D'Andre Lane's defense attorney, Terry Johnson, claims that since the trial he's uncovered explosive new information that could help find Baby Bianca, exonerate her father, and expose the real villains behind the child's disappearance

"I firmly believe today Bianca's alive," said attorney Terry Johnson. "I believe that this is part of some kind of huge plan to frame my client."

Terry Johnson says the information he's discovered explains those reported sightings of Bianca alive and well at a house.

One the alleged sightings was made by retired cop Niki Gibbs during an unrelated call to the house when she still with the Detroit Police Department.

And another was made by Michael Salisbury, a court-appointed investigator for D'Andre's defense team.

Now Johnson claims he's made a staggering discovery about the owner of that house, Patrice Hall.

"I found out that Patrice Hall was actually related or is related to Banika Jones, the mother of Bianca," said Johnson.

Johnson says the alleged information could have changed the outcome of D'Andre's trial.

"We had no idea at the time that these two are related or had any kind of connection," said Johnson.

He says Patrice Hall should have revealed the alleged information when his defense team interviewed her.

"I would even have been OK if Ms. Hall would have come forth at that time and said, you know, 'Listen, I'm related,'" said Johnson. "I don't think it's a coincidence."

Crime Watch Daily went to the house in the hope of talking to Patrice Hall, only to learn she no longer owns it. We are still trying to locate her.

But I did ask Banika about Johnson's claim that she and Patrice have family ties.

"I don't know how," said Banika. "I don't even know of anybody in my family named Hall. I don't know this Patrice. Maybe she knows somebody that knows somebody that I know, that a cousin -- but I don't know her."

But Banika says she does know the name of Patrice Hall from those reported sightings of Bianca at her house. And she says she even staked out the Hall house herself, hoping to find Bianca.

"I tried to see if I could recognize her, but I didn't," said Banika. "I just saw people coming in and out of a house. I never saw my daughter."

Crime Watch Daily also uncovered a police report from a man who says he actually saw Bianca alive outside of Banika's home.

"I wish I would have been there," said Banika. "If she was really there, I wish I had been there, because I have not seen my daughter since her birthday, and I don't know what happened to her."

And Terry Johnson makes a serious allegation: "If it's found out -- or I should say, when it's found -- that Bianca's alive, it would not surprise me if Banika Jones had something to do with this."

Banika firmly denies she was any way involved in her daughter's disappearance.

"Oh his office also believes that I set my daughter up," said Banika. "They think I did it. They told me that they believe I took my daughter and I'm hiding her to punish D'Andre, and if I would produce her it would help their client."

It's a suggestion D'Andre says is too painful for him to even consider.

"I don't want to believe that because I wouldn't want to think that the person who I loved and who I had a child with, who I have known for these years, would want to do something to hurt me like that," said D'Andre.

But those who are suspicious of Banika say one motive may have been jealousy, that Banika could have been angry that D'Andre planned to marry his live-in fiancée Anjali Lyons, the mother of another of his children. And Banika scoffs at that too.

"He's a serial cheater. You're dating a serial cheater," said Banika. "'Oh, I really want that.' We broke up for a reason: Because he's a terrible boyfriend. So no, I'm not jealous that you get to have the terrible boyfriend. You can have the terrible boyfriend."

But Anjali says she felt Banika resented her.

"She would throw like daggers, you know, up old stuff that they did before, I guess to try to make me jealous or something," said Anjali.

Anjali also reveals that Banika was still having sex with D'Andre, and astoundingly, with her too -- literally at the same time, in the same bed.

Threesomes?

"Yeah," said Anjali.

"Yup, we did," said Banika. "I don't know what that has to do with my daughter, but yeah, we had a threesome."

Anjali says it happened more than once.

"We did the threesomes with her maybe two or three times and that was it," said Anjali.

Anjali says it appeared to irk Banika.

And there's something else: D'Andre got them both pregnant at the same time.

"Mmhm," said Banika.

Same night?

"No, she was already very much pregnant when I met her," said Banika.

Despite suggestions that Banika might have framed D'Andre for the murder of their daughter Bianca out of jealousy and vengeance, she is the one who has steadfastly proclaimed from day one that she believes he is innocent. While it was Anjali's testimony that helped get him convicted.

So does Anjali Lyons feel partly responsible for putting the father of her child away in prison for the rest of his life?

"Yes," said Anjali.

D'Andre tells me by phone from prison that he was stunned and hurt by Anjali's testimony.

"She let fear get the best of her, and she said some things that weren't necessarily true, and some things that were taken out of context," D'Andre tells Crime Watch Daily.

But now, here on Crime Watch Daily, Anjali recants that testimony,

Did she lie under oath?

"I didn't tell the full truth," said Anjali Lyons.

Anjali had told the court that after hearing Bianca scream, the child suddenly fell silent. What is the full truth?

"The full truth is that Bianca was answering questions after her spanking," Anjali Lyons tells Crime Watch Daily.

She didn't mention that to investigators, even though she was under oath. Why is that?

"Because I was terrified of going to jail. That was just the reigning thought in my head. 'I'm gonna go to jail. I'm gonna go to jail, I'm gonna go to jail,'" said Anjali.

What about someone viewing this says, "Well, she lied once already, and she lied under oath no less. How do we know she's telling the truth now?"

"Well, we'll prove them wrong once we find Bianca," said Anjali.

D'Andre has already lost an appeal of his conviction, but his defense attorney Terry Johnson says there's still hope.

"The only way that he's going to be released, exonerated, would be for someone to find this child," said Johnson.

If she were still alive, Bianca would now be eight years old.

Age-progression expert Jovey Hayes (Phojoe.com) has come up with a picture of how she might look.

Age-progression expert Jovey Hayes (Phojoe.com) has come up with a picture of how she might look.

Mom Banika Jones breaks down when I show her the picture.

"She look just like her brother," said Banika. "They've got the same eyes and the eyebrows, that was always her dad."

Perhaps the picture will finally solve the mystery of what exactly happened to Baby Bianca Jones.
