Aunt: Mom said baby Elaina had broken nose

NEED TO KNOW
  • 18-month-old Elaina Steinfurth missing since June 2
  • Aunt says mother told her about injuries she claimed Elaina had when she woke up that morning
  • Elaina's mother was arrested for alleged child endangerment

Missing toddler Elaina Steinfurth’s aunt Mary Schiewe told HLN’s Nancy Grace Wednesday that Elaina’s mother claimed the girl had a broken nose and a black eye on the day she was reported missing.

Mary Schiewe said her half-sister Angela Steinfurth refused to tell her much else about what happened to Elaina.

“She told me that she was done talking and she didn’t have to answer to nobody,” Schiewe said, “that she answered enough questions.”

Angela was later arrested on a child endangerment charge for allegedly failing to seek medical attention after Elaina was injured, but the toddler is still missing.
