MUSKEGON, Mich.- The family of Bobbie Maples is terrified and frustrated after the 32-year-old disappeared just days after giving birth more than a month and a half ago.

Bobbie was initially believed to have gone missing Monday, Dec. 15, but Bobbie’s mother Muriel Maples says there is a new witness who stated she saw Bobbie leaving the hospital after visiting her daughter on Tuesday, Dec. 16.

Her mother says police told her a woman saw Bobbie getting into a brown minivan in front of Hackley Hospital in Muskegon, with a man who had a long white beard around 3 p.m. that afternoon.

Muriel says though Roosevelt Park Police say there is no evidence that points to foul play or criminal act, Bobbie disappeared without any personal belongings. She says abandoning her newborn baby girl in the hospital is something she knows her daughter wasn't capable.

“I think somebody did something to her, there’s no way first of all she’d leave Airyonna” Muriel said when we spoke to her last month. “If she was going to leave Airyonna, she would have called somebody like me to come get her, there’s no way she would just walk out and leave her.”

Bobbie’s sister now has temporary custody of her 8 week old daughter.

“I call her phone every day, ya know I send her pictures of the baby on her phone even though the phones not working,” Muriel said. “I think somebody might have killed her myself.”
