Posted: Updated:

Police and family members continue to search for 1-year-old Vanessa Morales today.

Morales has been missing since her mother, Christine Holloway, was found beaten to death in her Ansonia home earlier this month.

Police told News 12 that they searched the back of the BJ's in Derby on Monday, following up on a lead.

This is the same area police found a discarded child car seat.

Morales' father, Jose Morales, is in custody, and police say he is a suspect in the case.
