FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 6 (UPI) -- The co-organizer of a major volunteer search effort in Fremont, Calif., says volunteers are hopeful missing child Hasanni Campbell is still alive.

Sherri Miller, who worked with Courtney Tascoe-Burris to organize Saturday's search effort, said the volunteer effort failed to locate the missing 5-year-old or any clues related to the case, the Bay Area News Group reported.

"It gave us hope that we're looking for a live, breathing, walking child," she said following the Fremont search.

Campbell went missing in Oakland, Calif., on Aug. 10 and his foster parents, Louis Ross and Jennifer

Campbell, were temporarily detained by authorities following his disappearance.

Both Ross, 38, and Campbell, 30, were not charged in connection with their Aug. 28 arrest and were released last week. Campbell is the young boy's aunt.

The Bay Area News Group said the 11 search teams involved in Saturday's efforts included 124 volunteers from various organizations such as the San Jose Search and Rescue Team and the Newark Community Emergency Response Team.
