Indianapolis police detectives say the details surrounding the disappearance of 8-month-old Amiah Robertson are still under investigation. Amiah 23 inches tall, weighs 13 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes.

According to RTV6, Amiah's mother initially reported the girl missing on Saturday, March 16. At the time, she told police she had not seen Amiah since Thursday and family members did not believe Amiah was in danger.

During their investigation, police said detectives were given conflicting stories, which raised concerns for the child's welfare.

Detectives determined on Tuesday that Amiah may be in danger and asked for the public's help to locate her. The Indianapolis ABC station reports a Silver Alert was later issued by Indiana State Police because Amiah's disappearance does not meet the criteria for an Amber Alert.

Authorities also conducted a search warrant at the home where Amiah was first reported missing. 

Anyone with information is asked to call (317) 327-6160, (317) 327-3811 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at (317) 262-8477.

  • The law enforcement agency believes that the child is in imminent danger of serious bodily injury or death
  • There is enough descriptive information about the victim and the abduction for law enforcement to issue an Amber Alert to assist in the recovery of the child

  • The child's name and other critical elements, including Child Abduction flag, have been entered into the National Crime Information Center system
