UPDATE: Nakota’s father, Anthony Dibiah was arrested in the case and is charged with his murder. IMPD investigators have received support from multiple agencies in searching for Nakota’s remains but he still has not been found. Click here to read the story about Nakota’s mother and how she said DCS forced her to send her son to visit his dad.
UPDATE: This story is so disturbing, I can’t even write it and I am having trouble processing it. I am holding back my tears. Here is a link to the story, if you want to read more about it. I just can’t.
UPDATE: I found this post from Donna McIntyre that likely identifies who then were looking for: “Nakota Kelly is a ten year old child that the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department was called into investigate his whereabouts in July 18, 2020. It was later discovered after searching over the weekend in the West Side Apartment Complex near Eagle Creek that his case will be ruled as a Homicide. His father Anthony Finish called IMPD Sunday and told Law Enforcement Officials he killed his son. Sadly the search has not recovered Nakota’s remains. Law Enforcement Officials are asking the community for assistance in this case.A search is being conducted by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department regarding a missing child. The search was along Eagle Creek on Indy’s west side according to media, near Cossell Road.”
What is odd is that the police are not stating who the child is they are searching for.
I would think that if this is a current missing child that they would be announcing a child is missing, so I am thinking that this may actually be connected with another case, but the media searched police reports and found over the weekend officers made a welfare check on a child at an apartment just a mile and a half away on West Lake South Drive.
Neighbors told the media that officers searched a dumpster and an apartment. That apartment has now been sealed by the Marion County Coroner’s Office.
Research shows that 8-month-old Amiah Robertson went missing in March 2019. Amiah’s mother, Amber Robertson, reported her daughter missing on March 16. It was later learned that the infant had not been seen since March 9. Search crews with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) spent several hours along Eagle Creek on Indy’s west side looking for Amiah. Also, the search for Delano Wilson in 2014 was at Little Eagle Creek, a couple miles from the home he went missing from. Willie Wilson told police his son was abducted Aug. 27 by a man and woman who knocked him out in an alley near the home just west of downtown Indianapolis. Wilson was arrested and charged with Delano’s murder. In October 2016, Willie was tried but because the case against him was circumstantial, he was acquitted of all charges and released from custody.
Neighbors told media that the police showed up searching for a man and his child, but they were nowhere to be found.
This story will be updated as more information comes in.
