On Tuesday, the MPD released a statement that there was “reasonable suspicion” to believe that Rogers’ disappearance was not voluntary and that she could have been the victim of foul play.
According to the woman’s mother, Amy, Rogers had moved to Milwaukee nearly seven months ago to reportedly work things out with the father of her 15-month-old daughter, Katie.
The infant and her father were found at her paternal grandmother’s home. Police took the man into custody and records show he was arrested for a parole violation.
A GoFundMe was created by a family friend when Rogers was reported missing.

Rogers was last seen in the 2500 block of West Becher Street on April 26 at approximately 4.30pm.
Her friend told police that the woman's boyfriend was also last seen at the nearby Burnham Park, FOX6 reported.
The park was shut down on Monday while police searched for the young woman.
A friend told FOX6 that they found Rogers' phone in some bushes near 36th and Branting, less than a half-mile from the park.
Hours were spent searching through the park but law enforcement couldn’t find any sign of her.
“I think something bad happened to her,” said McKayla Mackey, a friend of Rogers who has helped in the search.
“If anybody knows anything, just please say something. If you got cameras that caught something, say something. Anything, even something a little suspicious.
“It might be the piece that we need. We’re missing something, and someone here in Milwaukee had to see something."
Rogers' one-year-old child was also reported missing but was later found safe, police confirmed.
“I just want to find her and bring her home because her daughter needs her,” Mackey said to FOX6.
