MILLINGTON, Tenn. -

A motorcyclist waiting for friends on the side of a road just north of Memphis discovered a dead baby lying in a ditch.

The Commercial Appeal reports the baby was found on Singleton Parkway in Millington, 18 miles outside of Memphis.

Police stated the infant was less than a year old and appeared to have been there for some time.

They said they did not know the face of the infant and would not say whether it was a boy or girl, only that it was dressed in a onesie.

Officials reported there are no missing infants out of Millington.  They believe the baby could be a missing seven-week-old girl out of Memphis named Aniston Walker.  

The girl was reported missing by her father on January 9.  Her mother, Andrea Walker, was charged the following day with aggravated child abuse.

Crime scene investigators combed through the ditch looking for evidence.

The investigation is ongoing.
