MEMPHIS(AP) - Police are suspending the search for a missing 7-week-old girl who disappeared under suspicious circumstances in northeast Memphis.

In a news release, the Memphis Police Department said the search for Aniston Walker was being suspended at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Officers using cadaver dogs conducted a three-day search of the area near the home where the baby lived with her mother and two siblings, with 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 has been charged with aggravated abuse and neglect. Police consider her a suspect in the disappearance.
