In the last 24 hours investigators have nearly tripled their man power and opened a new command post as part of their ongoing effort to find 11-year-old Celina Cass.
"We are getting numerous tips, we are looking at those tips, we are trying to determine the ones that have priorities over the others," N.H. Assistant Attorney General Jane Young said.
Dozens of people from agencies including the FBI and N.H. State police are now on the case. Thursday, Young confirmed the ground search for the little girl is back on.
"Until we find her we are going to continue to search this area and the surrounding community. We start again and continue to work out, way out, to make sure we have not missed anything," Young said.
As the investigation into Celina's disappearance continues, her friends and neighbors are passing out thousands of missing person fliers, hoping for clues that could bring her home safely.
Shahanna Fuller, who was handing out fliers, said, "Some have printed out 500 copies, others have printed out 1000. I went down to the Colebrook Copy Center-- they were making all of these color copies and now they have run out of colored ink."
Heather Cross lives across the street from Celina and her family. She says she is still hopeful the little girl is OK.
"I would see her while I am walking with my family," Cross said. "Her and her sister, they are good kids. I see them every day, every other day. She is a good girl she deserves to come home."
Young says she and her team are still looking for the public's help with any information they may have about Celina's activities in the days leading up to her disappearance. They are making it clear this is still a missing person case.
"Based on the information we have at this time it is still being treated as a missing persons case. We do not have the evidence to raise it to the level of suspicious," Young said.
Still, in a town where people say they know everyone who comes in and out, many are baffled as to where Celina could be.
There have been a lot of questions about why an Amber Alert has not been issued in this case. Young says because the little girl was last seen at home, there is no vehicle description or direction of travel that would make an Amber Alert possible.
Celina Cass is 5'5" and 95 pounds with long, dark brown hair. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt and pullover, and blue shorts and shoes.
Anyone with information about Celina's disappearance is asked to call the New Hampshire State Police at 603-846-3333.
