New arrest made in Steinfurth caseWritten by Staff Reports | | email@example.com
The Toledo Police Department (TPD) arrested Steven W. King on a felony obstruction of justice charge.
TPD picked up King for questioning the afternoon of July 22. After questioning, the decision was made to charge him with the felony.
King is the boyfriend of missing toddler Elaina Steinfurth’s mother, Angela Steinfurth. Steinfurth is also in jail on obstruction of justice charges. She was arrested June 12.
Elaina was reported missing June 2 when her father Terry Steinfurth Jr. came to pick up his daughter between noon and 1 p.m. at a home on Federal Street. An argument ensued when Angela refused to give him Elaina, according to several witnesses.
Almost an hour after the start of the argument, Angela went in to get Elaina but came out “crying and screaming” that Elaina was gone, according to Terry Steinfurth Sr., Elaina’s grandfather.
The family began searching the area for Elaina. They called the police when she could not be found.
