We now know more about the search warrant executed yesterday at a home on Oak Street in Monroe, MI.

The Monroe County Sheriff says the man who lives at the home, James Easter, was arrested on unrelated charges, but is now considered a person of interest in the disapeparance of Nevaeh Buchanan.

The sheriff wouldn't say much about the search warrant, but said neighbors told them Easter was dropped off at his house early yesterday morning. Neighbors then told police they saw him a short time later burning something in his backyard. Easter is being held in the Monroe County Jail awaiting arraignment this afternoon.

Sheriff Crutchfield says his agency is also interested in finding and interviewing two boys seen playing at Hollywood Elementary playground the night of Nevaeh's disappearance. He said their names are Ryan and Dillon, between 7 and 10-years-old and were playing in the park from 6 to 7 p.m. last Sunday.

The sheriff's department has received 750 tips to date and has followed up on a majority of those tips. If you have any more information that might help police, you're asked to call 734-240-7700.
