TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A grand jury has indicted Steven King on obstructing justice.

On July 22, King was arrested in connection to the case of missing 1-year-old Elaina Steinfurth. He was charged with felony obstruction of justice. He appeared in court the next day, where the judge set his bond at $250,000.

King has been on the radar since the investigation into Elaina's disappearance began June 2. After several weeks, the prosecutor's office was finally able to secure charges. Police say King has been impeding on their investigation and knew something about what happened to Elaina.

Elaina's mother, Angela, has also been charged with obstruction of justice in the case. She has made multiple courtroom appearances, and is scheduled to appear again mid-August.

Meanwhile, the search for missing baby Elaina continues. There is still a $10,000 reward being offered for information in the case. If you can help investigators, call 1-800-CALLFBI.
