Friends and family of Amber Dubois said the number of volunteers looking for the Escondido teen is waning as the 14-year-old girl passed the one-month-missing mark.
Maurice Dubois, the girl's father, said less than 100 volunteers showed up Saturday at the downtown Escondido makeshift command center to hand out fliers and search for his only child.
Last Saturday, there were 322 volunteers.
Amber's disappearance also has taken a toll on her family, he said. The girl's five-year-old, half-sister is in counseling and Amber's mother struggles every day, he said. Her parents, who are divorced, haven't worked since Amber disappeared on Feb. 13.
Escondido Police have not released any leads on the case. Investigators could not immediately be reached for comment on this story.
Amber was last seen just 300 yards from Escondido High School as she walked to school the morning of Feb. 13.
National missing children advocates have joined in the search and Amber's story has been featured nationwide. There's $55,000 reward for anyone with information leading to her safe return and an additional $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of anyone responsible for her disappearance.
