It's day three of the search for missing Happy Valley baby Ember Graham, and family members aren't giving up.

"We're all so attached to her, my mom's been crying for days straight, and we just don't know what to think. We can't think of who would ever do this," said Megan Stevenson, Ember's aunt.

The six-month-old was last seen in her crib on Wednesday night.

Her father, 24-year-old Matthew Graham, is in custody and has been named a person-of-interest.

The Shasta County Sheriff's Office searched on Thursday and Friday, but has scaled back efforts.

Community members have stepped up, putting up fliers and donating water, food, and time.

"We definitely could use our community members out here. Somebody's baby's missing, and we definitely could use boots on the ground," said Trudy Nickens, founder of Nor-Cal Alliance for the Missing.

"We have two small children so I can't imagine if one of them was missing, so I wanted to do everything I could to find her and bring her home," said Jessica French, who has joined in on the search.

Ember's family is pleading for any help they can get.

"From the bottom of my heart, hope that everyone that can come out and help us would just be amazing. The more people that we can get out here to find our baby girl, the better," said Heather Smith, Ember's aunt.

The search party will be back out on Sunday morning.

The family has set up a base camp in front of the water tower at Clear Creek and Cloverdale Roads.
