Search teams still have not been able to locate a missing three-year-old boy who was last seen in his grandmother’s backyard in Truro, Nova Scotia, according to CTV News.

The extensive search is now in its sixth day after Dylan Ehler went missing on Wednesday.

The search turned into a recovery operation on Thursday.

Crews searched the neighbourhood where the toddler disappeared but police still say there is no sign of the boy.

“Unfortunately, these efforts have not produced any new information,” said police in a statement on Monday.

Recovery efforts will continue today, say police. On Monday, search teams will be using an underwater camera in the Lepper Brook area.

Police have reported that Dylan and his grandmother were playing in the backyard when the boy went missing. His grandmother said she was distracted by the dog at the time and Dylan was gone when she turned around.

The search was launched on Wednesday afternoon after Dylan was reported missing at about 1:20 p.m.

People helping with the search include local police, the Truro Fire Service, a k9 unit, Ground Search and Rescue teams, a dive team and a helicopter from the Department of Natural Resources.

A fast-running brook near the home of the grandmother has been one of the main focus points of the search. When the boys' boots were located in Lepper Brook on Wednesday evening, searchers started focusing on it and the Salmon River.

The search has been mainly based around waterways, including Cobequid Bay.

On Monday morning, details of the weekend search were released by police in a statement.

A command post was set up by Colchester Ground Search and Rescue on Marshland drive by the Timbits soccer field on Friday.

Police say that the Salmon River was searched by members on both sides as a helicopter monitored from above. They also spoke with residents on Elizabeth street and Queen street in an attempt to find new information.

People with any information on the subject are asked to call the Truro Police Service at 902-895-5351.
