SPENCER, Ind. (WISH) — Tamera Morgan walked in the rain with flyers in hand. The white sheets of paper had the image of Morgan’s granddaughter, Shaylyn Ammerman.

On Wednesday morning, Morgan went to Shaylyn’s crib to wake her up, but the toddler wasn’t in her bed.

“This is my granddaughter. She’s missing and we just want her found and home safe,” said Morgan, holding up a flyer.

The investigators were called and a missing persons report was filed. Investigators conducted multiple searches. On Thursday, Indiana State Police held a news conference to give an update on the search.

According to troopers, seven to 10 people labeled as persons of interests were questioned. The same group are scheduled to take polygraphs.

24-Hour News 8 has learned that the persons of interest are cooperating with the investigation, according to ISP.

Shaylyn’s mom and dad currently share custody of the toddler.

Justin Ammerman, Shaylyn’s dad, talked to WISH-TV’s Jeff Wagner on Wednesday night.

In the interview, he expressed a possible motive, believing that someone is holding a grudge against the family. Ammerman believes someone came through an unlocked door and took Shaylyn out of her crib.

ISP Sgt. Curt Durnil added that investigators are exhausting every angle to get answers, but said it is hard to prove that someone walked inside the Ammerman home.

“There is no evidence that happened,” said Durnil.

Durnil expressed concerns about the possibility of Shaylyn being alive.

“She has been missing for 24 hours. We are worried. It’s not looking good,” said Sgt. Durnil.
