Police in Millington, Tenn. are investigating whether a dead baby found lying face down in a ditch is missing 7-week-old Aniston Walker, according to News Channel 5.

WREG reports the baby’s body was found around noon on Feb. 16, 2014 by a motorcycle rider along Singleton Parkway.

Millington Police Chief Rita Stanback told News Channel 5 the lifeless infant appeared to be less than a year old, was wearing a onesie, the same type of clothing Aniston was last seen in, and seemed to have been in the location for some time.

Inspector Charles Coleman with the Millington Police told WREG authorities are working to identify the baby, noting, “Everything is pending right now until we find out if it is the baby you guys are thinking about… We don’t know that so I guess everything is still kind of up in the air.”

Aniston’s mother, Andrea Walker, 33, told police she left Aniston with her 3-year-old son at around 11:40 a.m. on Jan. 9 while taking her 5-year-old child to school.

Aniston was reported missing by her father, Tramond Chitman – who reportedly does not live in the home – later that day, sometime after Walker returned to the residence.

Walker was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse in connection with Aniston’s vanishing.

She walked out of jail on Feb. 6 after posting $250,000 bond.
