NORTH BLOOMFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – The search for missing two-year-old Rainn Peterson continues Sunday.

Sheriff Altiere said that volunteers are no longer being accepted as there are “more than enough volunteers” to aid in the search.

No new leads have been discovered in the case.

Brandi Peterson, Rainn’s mother, said the great-grandparents are frustrated and Rainn’s two brothers are confused about what is happening.

Search dogs picked up Rainn’s scent about 200 yards north of the house in the woods near Norton Lane. The search will begin where dogs picked up her scent on Saturday.

The search is expanding to a two mile radius.

A helicopter is circling the area near the house. A plane with high definition is coming to assist in the search. The plane has different capabilities than the helicopter.

Seven sex offenders were interviewed. No leads were produced from the interviews.

Sheriff Altiere said the office has found no evidence of criminal wrongdoing.

In a Facebook post Sunday morning, Assistant Chief of the North Bloomfield Fire Department Roger Peterson addressed the case. He addressed the rumors and wrote that the search continues. Peterson also wrote that the community should trust the officials in charge of the response.
