Family, friends, and volunteers from the organization Mission for the Missing began searching the Good Harbor area at 12 p.m. hoping recent storm may have churned up new evidence.

Unfortunately, the search did not turn up any new clues as to what happened the days of her disappearance.
    
A pair of pink pants was found Friday on Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester. That's what Caleigh was wearing when she vanished from nearby Long Beach on April 19 while playing with her 4-year-old sister.

Her parents said they were "99.9 percent" sure the pants belonged to their daughter, but were not totally sure because they were not intact. Allison Hammond, Harrison's mother, said she can't remember if they were the same pants Caleigh was wearing when she disappeared.
    
Caleigh's parents told reporters at the scene they're hoping learn what happened to her and put their daughter to rest.

Their mom walked away to get a ball and Caleigh was gone. Police believe she was swept into the tide.

Massachusetts State Police and Rockport Police said shreds of the pants were located in some fishing gear about a mile away from where Caleigh disappeared. Investigators said the pants were consistent in size, color and style with those that Harrison was wearing the day she went missing.
