INDIANAPOLIS--Amiah Roberston has been missing since March 2019 and presumed murdered by Indianapolis Metro Police. That agency arrested the child’s mother Saturday.

Booking records indicate Amber Roberston, 23, is charged with neglect of a dependent resulting in bodily injury, neglect of a dependent resulting in serious bodily injury and two additional counts of neglect of a dependent.

Neither the police department, nor court record made a public indication for the reason for the charges.

The baby was eight months old when she went missing. You may remember that police searched a house and the banks of the White River soon after. Detectives indicated they had statements from the family and witnesses that led them to the searched.

While those searches were not fruitful, police made it clear they believe the child is dead, announcing in late March 2019 they believed Amiah to be the victim of a homicide.

She was last seen, say police, with Roberston’s boyfriend, Robert Lyons.
