Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and Loveland Police Chief Dennis Sean Rahe announced today that the father of a 4-month-old girl reported missing last night has been arrested on a charge of murder.

Charles Crawford was arrested this afternoon after information gathered by investigators led them to what are believed to be Kaylynn Crawford's remains, which were found along the riverbank of the Little Miami River off Glendale-Milford Road. Her car seat was also recovered.

Crawford reported to authorities that Kaylynn was taken from his car while it was parked in the parking lot of a business on Loveland-Madeira Road, however, investigators believe that story was fabricated.

Special agents with the Attorney General's Crimes Against Children Unit, which is a division of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI), were requested by Chief Rahe to lead the ongoing criminal investigation. The Federal Bureau of Investigation also provided significant assistance in the investigation.

Crawford is currently in custody at the Clermont County Jail.
