GLAMIS — Aided by helicopters, personnel from the county Sheriff's Office and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, San Diego police searched for a 7-year-old missing girl in this area of the Imperial Valley desert Thursday.
According to the San Diego police press office, nothing of significance was found in the Glamis area. They added police investigators were not going to return to the desert today, adding the investigation would now turn away from the Valley.
Authorities are searching for Danielle van Dam, reportedly abducted from her home between Friday night and Saturday morning.
Police have focused part of their investigation on a neighbor who has been identified as David Westerfield, 49, who lives two houses from Danielle's family.
Westerfield reportedly told authorities he had traveled to the Imperial Valley on Saturday and had spent time in the Glamis area. Earlier this week, Westerfield voluntarily brought police investigators to the Imperial Valley desert and police returned Thursday to comb the Glamis area.
