MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -

Police have named the mother of a 7-week-old girl who went missing from her northeast Memphis home as a suspect.

Aniston Walker was reported missing Thursday morning, and police have been using cadaver dogs to search homes, backyards and a pond in the neighborhood where she lived with her mother and two siblings. Friday's search proved fruitless. Police were resuming the search for a third day Saturday.

Police say the 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, she said, the baby was gone, but the 3-year-old was still in the house.

After interviewing Walker, police charged her with neglect and abuse. She's jailed on $500,000 bond.
