GLADWIN COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A mother is left with tough questions after visiting her baby daughter's gravesite, only to find the headstone missing and the site disturbed.

Amy Nuckles says she went to the cemetery in Gladwin County's Butman Township on Sunday.

When she arrived, she noticed the headstone was missing as well as the ceramic angels that used to sit at the site.

Nuckles even believes the casket may have been disturbed.

"The headstone, everything is gone, and they said it is considered vandalism," Nuckles said. "No other headstones were touched. Just my daughter's."

Nuckle's daughter, Savanna Lee, passed away in 1986.

The cemetery actually dug up the site to make sure the casket was still there.

Nuckles says she's relieved the casket has been found but wonders whatever happened to her daughter's headstone. She also hopes that if anybody knows anything, they will step forward.

Gladwin County Sheriff Mike Shea says police are continuing to investigate.
