Toledo, OHIO (CNN)– “As you can imagine, it’s rough.”

It’s been 12 days, but hope that baby Elaina is out there has not wavered for her family.

“We need to bring that baby home.”

After few breaks in the case, police arrested the toddler’s mother, Angela Steinfurth.

Court records state she admitted to knowing Elaina had suffered a serious physical injury, but didn’t get medical treatment.

“She should have been truthful and done. She shouldn’t of even been in the house from the get-go.”

Now, she’s in jail on two hundred and fifty thousand dollars bond, charged with child endangering.

“She made several mistakes. I’m not going to say she was directly responsible for anything, but my daughter was in her at the time that this happened and the police are handling it the way they feel they need to.”

Toledo police detectives won’t comment on the extent of Elaina’s injuries or who caused them, but regardless of the details, family, friends and strangers are not giving up.

    This is a really sad story. I hope this child is found.
