Adam Baker called 9-1-1 one month ago to report his daughter, Zahra Baker, missing.
Four weeks later, police continue searching for information about the 10-year-old cancer survivor who is presumed dead.
Investigators didn't search areas of Catawba or Caldwell counties on Monday, but that doesn't mean the case is cold.
"We're following up on some other leads in the investigation," said Hickory Police spokeswoman Libby Grigg.
Police found a bone in Caldwell County on Nov. 3 that could be related to Zahra's disappearance. Crews from the Medical Examiner's Office and the State Bureau of Investigation are conducting tests on the bone to determine it if belongs to the child. HPD Maj. Clyde Deal said last week he expects test results to be finished, at the earliest, by the end of this week. He declined to comment about what kind of bone it was, but confirmed it wasn't a bone fragment.
Adam Baker moved out of his house, located at 21 21st Ave. NW in Hickory, this weekend. He was evicted from the house last week.
Investigators located a prosthesis Oct. 27 in Caldwell County that belonged to Zahra, who had her lower left leg amputated due to cancer.
