ADRIAN, Michigan (WTVG) - The Michigan State Police is now the lead agency in the investigation of Dee Warner, who has been missing for more than a year.

MSP asked the public for help, saying that anyone with information is asked to call the Michigan State Police tip line at 855-MICHTIP (855-642-4847), and or www.michigan.gov/MICHTIP.

Lenawee County Sheriff Troy Bevier announced the request at a rally for Warner on August 1.

At that rally, Gregg Hardy, Dee’s brother says it’s a step in the right direction.

“I think it’s good for a number of reasons, but the main reason is it kind of focuses down on one organization running the show. The state police take the lead on it, they have been involved. I have been speaking with them routinely, sharing information. But now they are now the person in charge,” said Hardy.

According to Hardy, the family has had some worries about the progress of his sister’s case under the Lenawee County Sheriff’s Office.

“We became concerned that perhaps there were some things were missed, maybe not as thorough as it needed to be. So we participated, quite frankly we’ve been a little bit vilified for that. They think we’re being a little too pushy, demanding too much,” said Hardy.

Now that the case could be handed over to the State Police, Hardy thinks it could bring them steps closer to justice for Dee. “It’s been a year and three months, the public is demanding it not only just us the family. The public is demanding it, demanding some action,” said Hardy.
