The body of missing Missouri baby Tyler Dasher was found on Tuesday afternoon, just hours after he was reported missing from his family’s home. He was found near a cemetery by a pair of dog walkers.
The body was discovered about a mile from the boy’s family home in Affton, Missouri. A witness had previously reported seeing a person carrying a baby in a blanket in the area, leading to fears that Tyler Dasher was abducted. It’s not clear what the cause of death might have been.
The child’s mother had previously told police that she put him to bed as normal on Monday night, and that when she went to wake him on Tuesday morning he was no longer in his bed.
