Toledo Police, detectives, and investigators revealed new details about the case of a missing toddler from east Toledo. They say their laser focus right now is on Elaina's mother Angela Steinfurth.

In the Thursday morning press conference, police say interrogation and interviews with Elaina's mom led them to charge her with child endangerment. Questioning her also led them to Wednesday night's search of homes and a van located on Federal Street, where Elaina was reportedly last seen.

In the press conference investigators also said that they believe the baby was injured at some point, though they didn't reveal the extent of the injuries she may have suffered.

Earlier Thursday, Angela faced a judge in Toledo Municipal Court this morning. She was arraigned on one charge on child endangering.

Judge Robert Christiansen set her bond at $250,000.

Angela was crying while Judge Christiansen read her charge to her for her arraignment. 

Elaina Steinfurth still has not been found. 

Her next court date is June 20th.
