Indianapolis landfill search for infant finds no evidence

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indianapolis police spokesman says officers haven’t found any evidence in their search of an Indianapolis landfill for a missing 3-month-old girl.

Lt. Richard Riddle says nearly 50 officers poked through the South Side Landfill on Sunday searching for clues to the disappearance of Janna Rivera. Her mother reported her missing from their home on the city’s northeast side Friday.

Riddle says officers also spent part of Saturday searching a trash transfer station but found nothing.

Riddle says statements made by the child’s father have led investigators to believe the child died Friday and her body was placed in a trash container.

Riddle says the father remains a person of interest in the case, but no arrests have been made.

Janna’s mother was at work when the child went missing.
