(WMC-TV) - The mother of a 7-week-old reported missing Thursday is charged with two counts of aggravated child abuse and two counts of aggravated child neglect or endangerment.

According to the affidavit of complaint, Andrea Walker, 33, left her 7-week-old baby, Aniston, and a 3-year-old home alone while she took her 5-year-old son to school.  

Police say she returned home 30 minutes later and the baby was missing. She said the house was locked and there was no sign of a break-in.  Two others have a key.

According to police, Walker called Aniston's father, who then called police to report the baby missing.

Before police arrived, Walker reportedly left the 3-year-old alone again as she went looking for the infant. 

Also in the affidavit, it states, "Affiant is an experienced homicide investigator and personally observed several hours of interview with defendant, Walker. Based on his experience and age of the child that is missing, Affiant has probable cause to believe the child has sustained serious bodily injury."

Walker does not have a criminal history. Records do not indicate she was in any sort of financial trouble. She moved to Memphis between 2002 and 2003 after college.

Aniston has brown eyes and weighs about 10 pounds. The infant was last seen wearing a brown onesie with football emblems. 

Officers combed through construction dumpsters and smaller garbage bins. They even removed bags from the bins in an attempt to find any sign of the baby.

Baby items were hauled out of the house by crime scene technicians. Although police have yet to say whether a crime has been committed.

Aniston Walker has not been found.

Anyone with information should call police at 901-545-2677.
