Volunteers and search and rescue teams from more than a dozen jurisdictions have participated in the extensive search, but there has been no sign of the missing child, according to a news release from the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office.

The girl’s father, Matthew Ryan Graham, called 911 around 5:26 a.m. on July 2 claiming his daughter Ember was missing from his home in the community of Happy Valley, near Redding.

Graham told authorities he last saw Ember around 10:30 p.m. the night before, and when he woke up around 5 a.m. the next morning she wasn’t in her crib, according to sheriff’s officials.

The 24-year-old father was described as being uncooperative and was considered a person of interest in his daughter’s disappearance, the news release stated.

Graham was being held on an unrelated probation violation at the Shasta County Jail. He has not been arrested in the child’s disappearance.

Ember Graham suffers from a seizure disorder and must be given medication for her condition, the release stated.

A $10,000 reward was being offered for information on the girl’s whereabouts or information about what led to her disappearance.

Anyone with information was asked to contact the Shasta County Sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit at 530-245-6135. Information can also be sent to the Sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit email address: mcu@co.shasta.ca.us.
