A grim search going on in upstate South Carolina.

Johnston police are searching for the body of an infant after receiving a tip that a woman dumped the body in a dumpster.

That dumpster was picked up and taken to a landfill in Greenville county.

The mother of the child is in custody, but is not facing any charges at this time.

The tipster said it happened at an apartment complex on Dove street in Edgefield county sometime over the weekend.

Earlier Wednesday afternoon, police and State Police were out in the landfill searching for the body.

The aunt of the mother of the child says she is 26 years old and suffers from some type of mental health issue.
