BUCKEYE, Ariz. (AP) - Federal and local authorities in Arizona unsuccessfully searched a field for a 10-year-old boy who has been missing for nearly a month.

Buckeye Police Sgt. Jason Weeks says officers walked Thursday through an undeveloped lot covered with brush and trees as part of what he called a secondary search.

He says authorities have been actively searching for Jesse Wilson since he went missing from his home and want to double check areas that had been searched previously.

Weeks says authorities will not stop looking for the boy.

The case still is being investigated as a runaway and no foul play has been identified.

The FBI, Buckeye police and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office participated in Thursday’s search.

Previous searches have involved drones, U.S. Border Patrol tracking dogs and citizen volunteers.
