Arieanna Day disappeared Sept. 11, 2018

ROANOKE, Va. – It's been a year since a 3-month-old went missing in the Roanoke area.

Arieanna Day disappeared Sept. 11, 2018.

During the first week of the investigation, police announced that "circumstances related to Arieanna Day indicate that she is most likely deceased."

Andrew Terry, Day's father, was accused of concealing the body of the missing 3-month-old.

A jury will hear the case against Terry during a two-day jury trial starting Sept. 25.

He was indicted in January in connection with Day's disappearance.

He admitted to burying the baby near Jennelle Road after he picked her up bruised and barely alive from her mother's house in Roanoke, according to prosecutors.

The Roanoke Police Department posted on Facebook to remember Day on the one year anniversary of her disappearance. "Investigators remain dedicated to bringing Arieanna home," they said.

Police are asking any community members who know Andrew Terry or Arieanna's mother, Jessica Day, to call 540-853-2212.
