REDDING, Calif. (AP) — Northern California authorities say they’ve stopped actively searching for an infant who’s been missing for 11 days, but they’ll keep the case open and investigate any leads they receive.

Shasta County sheriff’s Lt. Dave Kent said Tuesday that search teams have been recalled from the field after scouring an area around the baby’s house and another region where a pacifier resembling one of hers was found.

Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko says he believes 6-month-old Ember Graham is dead and may never be found.

The infant’s father, Matthew Graham, was shot and killed in a police shootout Monday. He went on the lam Saturday after he became a “person of interest” in his daughter’s disappearance.
