The search for a missing baby in Northern California is in its fifth day.

Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko says search efforts continue Monday for 6-month-old Ember Skye Graham, of the community of Happy Valley.

The Record Searchlight reports Monday ( the focus remains on the baby's father, Matthew Ryan Graham. He's being held in the Shasta County Jail on an unrelated probation violation.

Police say Matthew Graham became a person of interest in his daughter's disappearance after giving inconsistent statements to sheriff's investigators.

Graham reported the baby missing Thursday morning. He said he last saw her in her crib Wednesday night.

The infant's mother, Jamie Graham, says she's focused on finding the girl and has seen no evidence her husband did anything wrong.

About 60 people searched throughout the day Sunday, with rough terrain, smoldering heat and wildlife plagued their efforts.
