A group of volunteers searching for a missing 2-week-old baby in Newton County, Georgia, discovered the body of a tiny, lifeless baby inside a bag, in a wooded area close to the parents’ home.
WSB-TV reports that family members believe that the body of the infant is that of Caliyah McNabb, a baby girl who disappeared from her family’s home on October 7. The family reported feeding the baby at 5 a.m., then checking on her again at 10 a.m., when they discovered her missing.

Authorities are currently looking for the baby’s father, Christopher Michael McNabb. Although they aren’t calling him a suspect yet, he reportedly fled after the baby’s body was found. The baby’s mother, Courtney Bell, voluntarily went to the sheriff’s office for questioning.

With no signs of forced entry or foul play, a 2-week-old baby girl disappeared from her family home in Covington, Georgia, in the early morning hours on Oct. 7. A family is desperate for answers.
CrimeOnline spoke exclusively with a friend of the family, who we are keeping anonymous at this time. The friend said that the family claimed they fed baby Caliyah at around 5 a.m. in the morning, then went back to sleep. When they checked on her between 9:30 a.m. and 10 a.m., Caliyah was gone. Another child in the home, a 2-year-old little girl, was safe, sleeping in her room.
Authorities brought in search and rescue dogs, who followed Caliyah’s scent for up to a mile before losing the trail. Without much to go on, authorities are hoping the public can offer assistance. According to Capt. Keith Crun with the Newton County Sheriff’s Office, there are no suspects or persons of interest at this time.
Anyone with any information should contact the Newton County Sheriff’s Office at 678-625-1400.
