INDIANAPOLIS — The search for 8-month-old Amiah Robertson has prompted a lot of rumors and speculation into what exactly has happened to the infant.
We know the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department took a missing person report from Amiah's mother on Saturday, March 16, but it was later learned that the infant had not been seen alive since March 9.
Detectives continue to conduct interviews, review tips and search for Amiah.
Below is a timeline of the events we know based on what IMPD detectives have released so far in their search and investigation.
Saturday, March 9
- This was the last day that Amiah's mother or anyone else police have spoken to remembers seeing Amiah Robertson alive. The child's mother told detectives that her boyfriend Robert Lyons had taken the infant "to the babysitter." These details were not actually released until a March 23 press conference with police. Lyons is believed to have been driving a 1996 maroon Isuzu Rodeo in "poor condition." Detectives believe Lyons was in the area of Rockville Road and South Mickley Avenue for an "extended period of time"during the day.
- Detectives say Lyons returned around 10 p.m. to Amiah's mother but did not have the infant.
- During the initial report to police, this was the day Amiah's mother told police she had last seen her infant. It is unclear what went on this day but it was later determined that her mother had not seen her for nearly a week before this time.
- Police were called to a home in the 200 block of S. Holmes Avenue to take a missing person report for 8-month-old Amiah. Police say at the time the report was taken, family members told them they did not believe the baby was in danger.
- Also that day, IMPD arrested a 20-year-old man from that same residence on a domestic, according to public police records. That man was preliminary charged of leaving the scene of an accident and criminal recklessness, according to those public records.
