25 year old Angela Steinfurth broke down in court. Her daughter missing more than a week. Steinfurth is charged with felony child endangering of 18 month old Elaina. "I need all the support I can get to bring her home." Steinfurth said.

The toddler disappeared almost two weeks ago, when her mother says she put Elaina down for a nap. Her estranged husband says he came for a custody visit with his two daughters. At first he says Angela refused to hand over Elaina. When she did agree, Elaina was gone.

Family members say the mother's story just doesn't add up. "She said she doesn't know where the baby is at and she doesn't know who took the baby. Personally from what I've viewed of her I don't think she's showing any emotion of it." mother's relative Terry Steinfurth Sr. said.

Investigators believe the child may have been hurt. Captain Wes Bombrys of the Toledo Police Department said "It was known to us that the baby was injured at one point. She was aware of it and did not seek medical attention for the baby."

Volunteers have scoured the neighborhood. The streets are lined with posters with one goal to bring Elaina home, but so far no clues.

Bond for Steinfurth has been set at $250,000.
