What was a 12-year old child doing out "late at night" on a school night, walking along a dark highway? Where were the other family members she was supposedly with -- wouldn't the police have some idea of who/what to look for if there were others who witnessed the incident? And why in the world is the so-called "aunt" spending her time emailing the news stations when she should be tending to the injured child? Sounds like someone (or multiple people) are out to get their 10 mins of fame.
