Searchers were using heavy equipment on the Sodus farm where Owen Hidalgo-Calderon's mother Selena was found dead last week.

The family of a missing 14-month-old met with prosecutors and law enforcement on Thursday even as the search for him continued.

Searchers were using heavy equipment on the Sodus farm where Owen Hidalgo-Calderon's mother Selena was found dead last week.

The search operation was much smaller, dropping from nearly 150 volunteers last week down to a few dozen deputies on Thursday. Alongside them, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which has deployed teams for the search and rescue.

"We need to make sure they're not only looking in those areas, but they're getting down, looking in the brush, looking under debris, branches, trees, anything down there where a child could be concealed," says Robert Lowery, the VP of NCMEC.

The search also expanded out, with deputies searching along Route 104 for evidence.

The Sheriff's Office plans on being back out Friday morning to look for Owen.
