INDIANAPOLIS (WISH/AP) — Indianapolis authorities have canceled a statewide silver alert for a missing Indianapolis 8-month-old. The FBI has also joined the search for Amiah Robertson.

WISH-TV reports investigators were searching a stretch of the White River Wednesday. That may have turned up some articles linked to the infant.

Police on Tuesday issued a statewide Silver Alert for the baby who was first reported missing Saturday by her family. Police said she is “believed to be in extreme danger and may require medical assistance.”

Police say Amiah’s family initially told investigators she had last been seen Thursday and “was not believed to be in danger.” That last sighting later was updated to Saturday.

Police executed a search warrant Tuesday at a house on the west side of Indianapolis where Amiah was believed to have been left with a baby sitter by her mother's boyfriend.

WISH-TV also reports Robert Lyons, the mother's boyfriend, was arrested on the same day Robertson was reported missing. He was arrested for criminal recklessness and leaving the scene of an accident.

Witnesses and family members have described the charge against Robert Lyons as a domestic situation.

They say the fight may have stemmed from some conflict over Amiah's paternity.

Robertson is 23-inches tall, 13 pounds with blue eyes. If you have any information on Amiah Robertson, contact the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department at 317-327-6540 or 911.
