Police investigating missing child case

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, Ohio -

A toddler in East Toledo was still unaccounted for Monday night.  Police are trying to put the whole story together and find 18-month-old- Elaina Steinfurth. 

Steinfurth and her sister were supposed to be given to their father, Terry, on Sunday afternoon in the 700 block of Federal. The mother turned over one child but after going back to get the second, she says the baby disappeared.  The mother, Angela Steinfurth, is now pointing to her boyfriend being responsible for the baby's disappearance.  His family is denying any involvement.

Now each side is pointing fingers, while the baby is still missing. 

Where's my baby?  I want her to come home to her mom and Dad.  I miss her.  Give us back our daughter," said Angela Steinfurth. 

"She's a loving baby she'd go to pretty much anybody and that's what scares me.  You never know, you never think anything like this is going to happen.  Doesn't even seem real.  It's like a bad dream," said Terry Steinfurth.

Elaina Steinfurth was last seen wearing orange shorts. The mother says, when she got back from the police department Monday morning, the shorts and the baby's medicine were both found in the home on Federal.

Friends and family members went through East Toledo neighborhoods looking for the baby Monday. They also held a prayer circle to pray for her safe return.

Both Angela and her boyfriend were at Toledo's Safety Building talking with police throughout Monday. 

No charges have bee filed.
