TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Three months after 1-year-old Elaina Steinfurth went missing, police executed a search warrant on the property where she was last seen.

On Thursday, a box was removed from a garage near Steven King's home on Federal Street in east Toledo. Inside the box were human remains, and now Elaina's family waits with heavy hearts for confirmation on whether or not Elaina has been found.

"If it is Elaina, we got to come together even stronger so that we can put our baby to rest," said Elaina' grandfather Richard Schiewe. "We can have peace now, finally, if it is her."

"I just feel like, why are there remains in a box?" said Mary Schiewe, Elaina's aunt. "But I'm holding on to hope. I always have, since day one."

Police have not confirmed who the remains belong to, but an autopsy was scheduled for Friday morning.

"You hope for the best, obviously, sometimes it don't always happen like that," said TJ Steinfurth, Elaina's father.

Steinfurth and the rest of the family have waited through months of searching to see their baby again. As they continue to wait for answers, they have one message for her.

"All of us love you," Richard Schiewe said. "If it's you, we got you…Papa and Daddy and everybody found you, and we're going to bring you home, baby."

The family says it will be another sleepless night for them as they wait for news.
