An Ohio woman charged with obstruction won't be allowed to leave jail for the funeral of her toddler, who was missing for months before her remains were found in a garage.
TOLEDO, Ohio - The mother of a missing Ohio toddler appeared in court on Thursday while the community rallied support for the girl.
Angela Steinfurth is charged with child endangerment. She was arrested after her 18-month-old, Elaina, vanished from a Toledo home on June 2. The child has not been seen since.
Police accused the mother of failing to get medical treatment for her child, even though she knew the girl was seriously hurt. Officers have not said how they believe little Elaina was injured.
Steinfurth's preliminary hearing was postponed until Monday. She is in custody on $250,000 bond.
Meanwhile, pick ribbons are now wrapped around trees, poles and cars up and down Federal Street as a reminder that Elaina is still missing.
"It actually came from the yellow ribbons from the support for the troops. Support for Elaina. Keep hope alive. She's still somewhere. She's not home yet. Bring her home," said family friend Valerie Lang.
FBI divers combed the Maumee River Monday and Tuesday, but did not find anything.
