Search continues in earnest for missing teenager Jessica Cain.

Activity at the dig site in southeast Houston has not slowed down, more than one week into the search for the body of missing teenager Jessica Cain.

Two massive excavators moved all day Wednesday, digging more than six feet into the ground.

William Reece, the convicted kidnapper and suspect in Cain's disappearance in 1997, appeared on site wearing handcuffs and gesturing toward the ground where crews dug.

Stephanie Hardy James returned to the site Wednesday and brought a flower arrangement to leave on the fence.

"I feel like she's gonna be found, it's just gonna take a while," James said.

The contractor working on the property adjacent to the dig site on E Orem Drive told Eyewitness News police plan on digging on his property next.
