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.
Police said they later checked the residence “at least five times” and conducted door-to-door searches in the neighborhood but failed to find the girl. The incident remains under investigation, police said.
Sgt. Joe Heffernan would not say whether police suspect that the incident could involve an abduction, saying only that “[when] we have a 1 1/2-year-old girl missing, we’re always concerned.”
