Indy police investigating items found on near west side; unclear if related to missing baby

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department are investigating items found on the city’s near west side.

Police say it’s unclear at this time if the items are related to the case of missing 8-month-old Amiah Robertson.

Several law enforcement vehicles are at the scene near the intersection of McCarty Street and Sadie Street, which is a few blocks away from where Amiah’s mother said she last saw her daughter on Holmes Avenue last Thursday.

“Our number one goal is to locate her, and hopefully locate her safely," IMPD Sargent Jim Gillespie said

IMPD officers say they’re doing their “due diligence in following up on all leads and continue to ask for the public’s assistance in locating the missing baby.”

Police say one thing that’s  been making their investigation more difficult is the constant flow of false information swirling around social media. Gillespie added that detectives have to follow up on every lead, even the ones that end up with no truth behind them.

"You’re taking resources away from what could be relevant and good tips and you’re putting them in the rumor mill, which is exactly what we don’t want," he said.

While it's unclear what items investigators were able to recover from the creek's banks, or whether the items have any connection to the case, officials say the items will be processed with the hopes that it helps them find Amiah.

"Because in the end,  we want to find Amiah. That’s who we want to find, that’s who want to find safe," Gillespie said.

Amiah remains missing. Anyone with information regarding her whereabouts is asked to call 911.
