Sean Phillips, 21, is jailed on $250,000 bond and was scheduled to go on trial Jan. 17 in Mason County Circuit Court in Ludington. The charges are unlawful imprisonment and parental kidnapping.

Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola announced the postponement Thursday. No new trial date has been set.

Katherine Phillips was 4 1/2 months old when she last was seen June 29, 2011, with Phillips. Katherine lived with her mother Ariel Courtland at an apartment in Ludington.

Sean Phillips is from Victory Township.

Extensive searches haven’t turned up the girl.
