The search for Rainn Peterson had expanded to all of Ohio and parts of Pennsylvania on Sunday afternoon.

On Sunday afternoon, Rainn was added to the missing children's list on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

On Sunday morning authorities were requesting help from volunteers to search, but according to the Trumbull County Sheriff's Department around 4 p.m. they were no longer asking for volunteers.

The sheriff's department tells Fox 8 that they did not want volunteers on Saturday because they were using specially trained dogs to pick up Rainn's scent. Too many people could have ruined tracking for the dogs.

Helicopters participated in the search today and searchers also used horses and checked culverts in the area.

The Trumbull County sheriff reports that agencies combed through computer and phone records of the family and questioned a number of family members, including Rainn's parents, for alibis.
