PALMDALE (CNS) - Los Angeles County sheriff's detectives Wednesday are continuing their search of an Antelope Valley landfill for the remains of a missing 3-week-old baby.

Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department's Palmdale Station responded Tuesday to the 2300 block of Carolyn Drive in Palmdale regarding a report of a missing child. But the case quickly turned into a death investigation, and a search began for the "remains of the infant," sheriff's officials said.

ABC7 reported the infant is 3-week old Baki Dewees, who has been missing since May 3 and was last seen with his father, 24-year-old Yusuf Dewees. The baby's mother and father are in custody in Utah on unrelated charges, the sheriff's department said.

Anyone with information about this case was asked to call the Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500. Anonymous callers may call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or send tips to
