MUSKEGON, Mich. — A man was arrested in Muskegon County in connection to a missing person case out of Maryland.

Authorities arrested Michael Robertson in Muskegon on Wednesday for the murder of Akia Eggleston.

Eggleston went missing on May 3, 2017.

Eggleston stopped at a bank in downtown Baltimore near the Inner Harbor. She was spotted on surveillance cameras at the bank but hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

She was 22 years old at the time of her disappearance and eight months pregnant with her second child.

Prosecutors say Robertson was the father of the unborn child. They also say the two planned to move in together.

According to investigators, Robertson had also been seeing another woman who he had recently had a child with.

During a press conference, prosecutors said the day before Eggleston went missing, Robertson and the other woman had allegedly gotten into a heated argument over a sonogram photo Eggleston shared.

Cell phone records indicate that Robertson was the last person with Eggleston at her home on the night she went missing.

Eggleston’s body has never been found.

The FBI offered a reward of up to $25,000 for information regarding the whereabouts of Akia Shawnta Eggleston.
