INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department detectives on Wednesday evening investigated in the area of West McCarty and White River. The search is believed to be related to missing 8-month-old Amiah Robertson.

"We have to be hopeful that we will see her again," he said. "If you know something about the investigation please reach out."
