CINCINNATI - Cincinnati police say a North Fairmount mother who lost custody of her two children was jailed on a contempt charge after she refused to reveal where the two girls were.
Gwendolynn Golder, 19, is in the Hamilton County Justice Center and will appear in juvenile court on Friday, June 15.
According to police, Golder's two daughters, 2-year-old Gabriellemarie Gebrselassie and 10-month-old Gisaiah Golder-Mumphrey were last seen June 3.
A caseworker showed up to Golder's Bleeker Avenue home and saw the girls through a window, but their mother refused to open the door.
It's not clear why protective services were taking custody of Golder's children.
Police believe they are with a family friend.
Anyone with information on the missing girls are asked to call Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
