Mom of missing 1-year-old girl arrested in Toledo

TOLEDO, Ohio - The mother of a missing 1-year-old girl in northwest Ohio has been taken to jail on a felony child endangering charge.

The Lucas County jail said 25-year-old Angela Mories was taken into custody Wednesday and was set to be arraigned Thursday in Toledo Municipal Court. The jail had no attorney listed for her.

Mories' 1-year-old daughter, Elaina Steinfurth, was last seen June 2. That's when the girl's father went to Mories' residence to pick up his two daughters, but only Elaina's 4-year-old sister could be found.

Authorities and volunteers have searched homes, vacant buildings, parks and other areas for any sign of Elaina.

The Blade newspaper reports police brought in a cadaver dog and searched several homes Wednesday but didn't comment on that search.
