TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Angela Steinfurth, mother of Elaina Steinfurth, faced a judge in Toledo Municipal Court this morning with tears streaming down her face. She was arraigned on one charge on child endangering.

Judge Robert Christiansen set her bond at $250,000.

Angela was crying while Judge Christiansen read her charge to her for her arraignment. 

According to court documents, Angela did admit to officers that she was aware that Elaina sustained a "serious physical injury." The documents go on to say Angela knew Elaina needed medical treatment but failed to ensure she got the necessary medical treatment for that injury. 

Elaina Steinfurth still has not been found. 

Her next court date is June 20th.
