Shasta County Sheriff's deputies are continuing their search for Matthew Graham and baby Ember Graham.

A no-bail warrant was issued for his arrest for charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm and a felony probation order violation.

Matthew Graham was last seen on foot July 11 near the intersection of Court and Tehama streets. Deputies are unsure as to whether or not Graham has secured a vehicle.

The Sheriff's Office Major Crimes Unit said that anyone who harbors, conceals or assists Graham with evading capture will be investigated and charges will be sought for their arrest and prosecution.

Approximately 70 searchers and K-9 teams are still in the Ono area today searching for Ember Graham or any evidence leading to her location.

Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko said that anyone who sees him should contact authorities immediately, and not try to approach him. Bosenko says Graham was last seen wearing a camouflage baseball cap. He is about six feet tall and has light brown hair.

Shasta County search crews resumed their efforts Friday afternoon in the Ono area after a pacifier similar to one Ember had was found. But according to Bosenko, no new evidence was uncovered.

In the days following Ember's disappearance, investigators said they have surveillance video showing Matthew and Ember arriving at a convenience store, where he took her inside, and pumped fuel as well. They say this happened last Wednesday night, when Ember disappeared.

Sheriff's officials say Graham told them he took the baby to the store and then drove back home, but authorities say the video shows Graham driving the opposite direction from his home when he pulled out of the parking lot. The video shows his pickup truck heading toward his home about an hour later.

Investigators are now asking anyone with surveillance video from the Ono area to call (530) 245-6025.
