Authorities said they continue to look for clues in the case of kidnapped teenager Pearl Pinson, who went missing in Northern California more than a week ago.

Detectives have searched areas of Sonoma County as well as locations near Vallejo but have found no sign of her. Solano County Sheriff’s officials put out a photo of a backpack similar to the one Pinson carried, urging the public to contact officials if they’ve seen it.

“We also are asking anyone who may find a backpack abandoned like the one pictured to call us,” the sheriff said on Facebook.

Authorities have not searched for the 15-year-old since last Saturday, when they called off an intense effort in the Willow Creek area in Sonoma Coast State Park, according to the Solano County Sheriff’s Office. Crews spent two days looking for Pearl from the air and ground, but found no signs of her.
