Police say the girl’s mother, Diana Cojocari, did not report her daughter missing.

She was arrested around 10.15am on Saturday, Cornelius Police said.

She is currently being held in the Mecklenburg district detention center.

The girl’s stepfather, Christopher Palmiter, 60, was arrested after waiting three weeks to report her disappearance.

Cornelius police said Thursday, the day they were reported missing, that they were launching an investigation into the girls’ disappearance.

Authorities continue to search the missing girl’s home in North Carolina.

The FBI joined the search for the boy when police began digging up the parents’ backyard looking for evidence.

Horrified neighbors watched on Friday as the family’s home and backyard were searched in hopes of finding evidence of Madalina’s disappearance.

The next day, Cornelius Police announced that Palmiter had been arrested on charges of failing to report a child’s disappearance to law enforcement.

Palmiter works as a mechanical designer at industrial machinery manufacturer Ingersoll Rand, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Cornelius Police have not confirmed if they found anything of importance during their investigation.

However, authorities said they are still looking for her and are asking the public for information.

Police say Madalina is 4ft 10 and weighs about 90 pounds and has hazel and hazel eyes.

The 11-year-old was last spotted in jeans, pink, purple and white Adidas shoes, a white t-shirt and a jacket.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Cornelius Police Department at (704) 892-7773.

Those who wish to remain anonymous can contact the North Mecklenburg Criminal Investigation Department at (704) 896-7867.
