AFFTON — Police said the body of a small child has been found near a cemetery about a mile from where 1-year-old Tyler Dasher went missing.
St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch said the child has not been positively identified, however he said there are no other reports of missing children in the area.
Fitch said people walking a dog found the body Tuesday afternoon a few hours after Tyler's mother reported him missing from his crib.
Fitch said there are no suspects. Police continue to interview Tyler's mother and father, who live separately.
Tyler's mother, 20-year-old Shelby Dasher, told authorities she put him to bed about 10:30 p.m. Monday. She overslept and reported him missing after she awoke about 11 a.m.
