An AMBER alert has been issued for two missing Milwaukee children.

The AMBER alert was issued to help find Cameria Banks, 4, and Zaniya Ivery, 5, who were last seen together with their mother, Amarah J. Banks on Saturday, Feb. 8th.

According to the AMBER alert, police believe all three to be missing under suspicious circumstances.

Police say Banks and the children were last believed to be with Arzel J. Ivery, 26. Ivery is already in custody.




Amber Alert issued 1 week after Milwaukee mother, daughters reported missing

Saturday, Feb. 15 marked one week since a Milwaukee mother and her two daughters were reported missing — and an Amber Alert has been issued.

FOX6 reports that the Amber Alert noted Amarah “Jerica” Banks, Cameria Banks, and Zaniya Ivery are believed to be missing under suspicious circumstances. They were last believed to be in the company of Arzel Ivery, 25, who was taken into custody.

Cameria Banks is 4 years old, and Zaniya Ivery is 5.

The three were last seen Saturday, Feb. 8 at 1 a.m. near Sherman Boulevard and Florist Avenue.

“I’m worried,” said Valeria Spinner-Banks, who never thought her daughter, Amarah “Jerica” Banks and her grandchildren would be on a national poster. “This is going out to all of the hotels, and police departments, and hospitals.”

The trio has was added to the database for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

“This is horrible,” said Spinner-Banks. “I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy. Just horrible,” Spinner-Banks said.

Spinner-Banks has been full of anguish — having not heard from Jerica and her daughters.

“We feel like this is a bad dream,” Spinner-Banks said. “I’m praying and hoping that she is all right and the kids are all right.”

The last time Spinner-Banks saw the three of them was Friday, Feb. 7 — after a funeral for Jerica’s 1-year-old son, Arzel. The boy died from natural causes. Jerica was dropped off at home with the kids — and has not been heard from since.

$750K bond set for Arzel Ivery, man accused of killing Milwaukee mother, daughters

Arzel Ivery, accused of killing a Milwaukee mother and her two daughters, is in Milwaukee police custody. His bond was set at $750,000.

Milwaukee police said that Ivery was extradited back to Wisconsin from Memphis, where he was arrested earlier this week.

Ivery was charged with three counts of first degree intentional homicide on Tuesday.


In police interviews, Ivery said there had been tension between him and Amarah Banks since the recent death of their son on Feb. 7. He admitted to going to her house on Feb. 8 during which time the two got into an argument and Ivery eventually strangled her to death.

Ivery told police he did not want the children to "live in a world where they did not have their mother," so he went into each child's bedroom and strangled them as well, according to the criminal complaint.

'No, please don't kill me': Complaint reveals details of night mother, daughters went missing

According to the criminal complaint, the last time family saw Amarah Banks and her daughters was when they dropped her off at her apartment on North Sherman Boulevard around 1:00 a.m. Feb. 8.

Shortly after, a neighbor named Velta Lee, who shares a wall with where Banks lived, said loud noises woke her up.

"And I heard like some loud thumping on my wall, and I heard a lady screaming, so I jumped up and I hear her screaming, 'No, no, help me, help me,' so i dial 911," Lee said.

The complaint goes on to say another witness saw Amarah Banks run through the parking lot to another apartment without shoes on and appeared to be bleeding from the mouth. The complaint says that witness told investigators they saw Ivery drag Banks back to the apartment.

"Then I heard her screaming some more, and the last thing she said was like, 'Please don't kill me,' and then it just got silent," Lee said.

He dragged the mom back to the apartment, a neighbor did see it and did call for help and the call is being reviewed, etc. I believe I read the neighbors also saw the girls outside during these events. An entire family wiped out. And he will get life in prison, I don't see why he wouldn't.
