Dallas police have arrested the father of a 9-month-old girl who was reported abducted from her home. Alandus Weaver, 20, was arrested on suspicion of tampering or fabricating evidence to hinder an investigation, police said Sunday. Senior Cpl. Kevin Janse declined to provide further details.

Police began searching for Daijsa Weaver on Tuesday after her mother reported a man broke into her apartment, tried to sexually assault her then took the baby. Weaver was not home at the time. Police have expressed skepticism about the disappearance because the parents' accounts differ.

Authorities searched Lake Lewisville on Sunday after receiving a tip the girl's body may be there. The child still has not been found.

Weaver was being held Sunday with bond set at $100,000. No information was available on an attorney who could comment on Weaver's behalf, according to the jail.
