Police near Detroit found a car belonging to one of three missing rappers who have not been seen for nearly two weeks, officials said Thursday.
A 15-year-old boy was picked up last week and accused of having the vehicle of missing rapper Armani Kelly, Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer said.

Dwyer declined to discuss how the car’s discovery could factor into the search. He said there were no signs of violence in Kelly’s car.
“There was no blood or anything of a nature that would lead us to believe they were either transported or murdered in that particular vehicle,” Dwyer said.
Kelly, Montoya Givens and Dante Wicker have not been seen or heard from since their Jan. 21 gig at a bar was canceled.
A Detroit police spokesman declined to comment on the developments in Warren, a city about 13 miles north of Detroit.
Dwyer would not confirm whether the 15-year-old Warren resident had been arrested. He said that the teenager was "brought into the Warren police headquarters" and that "he was taken into custody" at one point last week.
Late Thursday, Michigan State Police said "multiple victims" were found in an abandoned apartment complex in Highland Park, about 13 miles from Warren.
It's not clear how the victims died or whether they are the missing men.
In an email, a state police spokesman, Lt. Michael Shaw, said that authorities were working a death investigation and that the victims' identities had not been confirmed.
