LEXINGTON, KY (WAVE) – A grandmother accused in a missing toddler case appeared in court.

Alouette Day-Moreno-Baltierra, was reported missing in Los Angeles and was found last Thursday on the University of Kentucky campus.

Her grandmother, Maria Baltierra-Dejesus, 62, claimed to be looking for work at a campus health facility as a doctor.

In court on Wednesday, she insisted she was still a licensed doctor in Kentucky.

According to the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure's official website, she is an inactive physician, who got her license to practice medicine in 1993, but that license expired in 2003.

Defense Attorney Ben Cabuay Jr. answered questions as to whether the grandmother may have a mental health issue, "At this point, if there are mental health issues that need to be addressed they will be addressed, but at this time, it's not the forum that we need to address it with."

The child's father spoke to a Los Angeles television station and said he had not seen the little girl much since she was born. The child's mother has not been located, but is suspected to be in Europe.

Maria Baltierra-Dejesus' attorney entered a not guilty plea on her behalf.
