Landfill searched for missing toddler's body

ROANOKE, VA (WWBT) - Authorities are now searching a landfill for the body of a missing Roanoke toddler.

They also plan to continue their search of the Roanoke river once water levels drop.

Aveion Lewis was reported kidnapped earlier this month, but investigators believe he was dead before that call was made.

His stepfather is accused of child neglect and other charges.

Today would have been Aveion's third birthday.
