Photo of masked suspect who used missing student's ATM card released

- UPDATE: A body of a young woman was discovered by police late Monday afternoon. Investigators have not confirmed it is missing Kajavia Globe.

Detroit police have released a photo of a suspect who used Globe's ATM card to withdraw money after she went missing.

In the photo a person is in a sedan, wearing a skull mask at bank on Seven Mile and Telegraph.

Earlier on Monday morning, the missing Wayne State student's car was discovered on the west side of Detroit.

Police say signs of foul play were discovered inside Kajavia Globe's car and say they are ramping up the investigation.

"We talk every day," said Globe's sister Alondria Burns. "(We) Facetime 100 times a day. Never in a million years would she go anywhere."

Burns hasn't had much sleep since her younger sister disappeared on Friday. She and Kajavia have been inseparable, with birthdays just five days apart.

The 2003 gold Chevy Impala that Kajavia Globe was last seen in, was discovered near Chatham and Keeler streets on the city's west side at 6:30 a.m. Monday.

"I've been waiting for someone to find the car, if there were a fight or a struggle anything of that nature," Burns said. "That car holds a lot."

Family members say her cell phone was missing but her purse was still inside. Investigators spent all day canvasing the area for clues.

"This morning we did find the vehicle," said Chief James Craig. "There was evidence of foul play so our investigation has been ramped  from what it was."

About $500 was taken from a bank on Seven Mile and Telegraph. Whether she knew the suspect. or was forced to give them her pin number though is still unclear.

"We are processing video we don't have enough to release," Craig said. "But we are in the process of identifying that we do not believe it was the young lady that was missing because the person in the video tape was masked up I can tell you that.

And Globe's sister will tell you they will not quit until the 24-year old Wayne State University student is home.

They've already organized several searches and will continue to pass out fliers hoping to make their family whole again soon.

"One way or another, I will find my sister," Burns said.
