AFFTON, Mo. (AP) — The St. Louis County prosecuting attorney has called a news conference to discuss the death of 13-month-old Tyler Dasher.

The news conference was scheduled for 3:15 p.m. Wednesday. A news release did not say if prosecutor Bob McCulloch would announce charges, and a spokesman declined comment.

Tyler was reported missing around 11 a.m. Tuesday from his home in Affton. His body was found later that day near St. Marcus Cemetery, about a mile from his home.

Tyler's mother, 20-year-old Shelby Dasher, was arrested and taken into custody about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, but as of midday had not been charged.
