Mom of missing Michigan girl fails polygraph

MONROE, Mich. (AP) - The mother of a missing 5-year-old Monroe girl admits she flunked a portion of a polygraph test, but police say she is not a suspect.

Jennifer Buchanan tells The Monroe Evening News she failed one question Monday due to a lack of sleep. She says it was a "horrible" experience, but she understands why investigators interviewed her.

Her daughter, Nevaeh Buchanan, last was seen Sunday night in the parking lot of her apartment complex in Monroe, 40 miles south of Detroit.

Maj. Dan Motylinski of the Monroe County sheriff's office says Buchanan is not considered a suspect. Neither is a convicted sex offender who is in custody.

Nevaeh is white, just under 4 feet tall, weighs 45 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes.
