MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Memphis Police have been searching by land and air since Thursday morning, using every resource available looking for 7-week-old Aniston Miller.

Saturday night, that search now over indefinitely, at least until new leads come in according to Memphis Police.

"Until the mother comes forth with what she knows, we are not going to know because all the answers lie with her, "said neighbor Katrina Page.

Neighbors who live near the home where the baby lived on the 56-hundred block of Falling Bark Drive in Northeast Memphis say they didn't mind their neighborhood being turned into a crime scene. That's because they were hopeful the baby would be found.

"It's very shocking that it happened in this neighborhood, it's heartbreaking that she was only 7 weeks old and it happened right across the street," said Page.

The newborn was reported missing on Thursday morning by her father. Her mother, 33 year old Andrea Walker, has now been charged with aggravated child abuse and neglect. Walker admits she left the baby home alone with her 3 year old son in order to take her 5 year old to school. She tells police when she came back, little Aniston was gone.

"Realistically 7 week old kids don't mysteriously disappear on their own without some circumstances behind it, said Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong.

Police say Andrea Walker has not been cooperating. They've interviewed other family members and conducted an extensive grid search of the area. But so far there has been no sign of the little 7 week old baby girl whose story has garnered national attention.

Police say while the search is over, the investigation continues. Walker is set to appear in court on Monday.
