The Department of Natural Resources air support is also back on scene.

Our newsroom has been told the command post remains set up in the same area Thursday morning, the ballfield next to the Salmon River, as the search continues.

A press release from the town Thursday morning states that an Amber Alert was not issued as police confirm that foul play is not suspected.

Police say Dylan was last seen wearing a dark green jacket with patches and a fur hood, camo pants, and bright blue rubber boots.

An alert from the Emergency Management Office issued Wednesday afternoon, localized in the Truro area, says the child has brown hair and rosy cheeks with a green left eye and blue right eye.

Truro Police says while they appreciate everyone who wants to volunteer, the Ground Search and Rescue team has all of the appropriate equipment and support required at this time.

Police add that having civilians onsite could potentially lead to the destruction of evidence or tracks.

McNeil is expected to provide an update on the search at the Truro Police Station at 3 p.m.
