One year ago today, 18-month-old Elaina Steinfurth was reported missing from an East Toledo home.

The toddler‘s remains were found months later, at the same address where she was last seen, after countless community rallies and endless searches of the city, Maumee River, dumpsters, and fields.

In remembrance of the girl, family and community members are hosting a memorial at Leonard and Federal streets at 7 p.m. today. Organizers ask participants to bring balloons.

The girl’s mother, Angela Steinfurth, and her now ex-boyfriend, Steven King III, are serving life sentences for the girl‘s death. King pleaded guilty to aggravated murder, tampering with evidence, and abuse of a corpse. Steinfurth pleaded guilty to murder.
