Baby Elaina's mom indicted for obstruction

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, Ohio -

The mother of a missing East Toledo toddler has been indicted on a charge of obstruction of justice by a Lucas County grand jury. 

Angela Steinfurth has already been charged with child endangering by Toledo Police, but she was not indicted on the child endangering charges on Monday.

Steinfurth appeared in Toledo Municipal Court early Monday morning. The indictment says that between June 1st and June 2nd, Steinfurth communicated false information.

Steinfurth says she last saw Baby Elaina on June 2nd when she was supposed to give the child to her father.

Angela said the toddler had disappeared and police were called to the home where they were staying. Steinfurth is accused of communicating false information to the police.

She was arrested on child endangering charges on June 12th. Police say she knew Baby Elaina was hurt, but didn't seek medical attention for the girl.

It's not clear what will happen with the child endangerment charges. If the grand jury decides not to indict, they issue what's called a "no bill." That did not happen in this case. The final say on the indictment belongs to the grand jury.

If you have any information on Baby Elaina's location, call the tip line - 1-800-CALL- FBI.
