MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Police have suspended the search for a missing 7-week-old girl who disappeared under suspicious circumstances in northeast Memphis.

Over the weekend, the Memphis Police Department said the search for Aniston Walker was suspended. It lasted three days. Officers used cadaver dogs near the home where the baby lived with her mother and two siblings, but they had no results.

According to police, the baby's mother, 33-year-old Andrea Walker, said she left the baby at home with her 3-year-old son while she took her 5-year-old son to school Thursday. When she returned, the baby was gone, but the 3-year-old was still in the house.

Walker was due in court Monday morning to be arraigned on charges of aggravated abuse and neglect. Police say they consider her a suspect in the disappearance.
