GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Crews searched on horseback yet again Monday, using dogs, mounted police and community volunteers. But there is still no sign of the autistic boy who affectionately goes by "Mars."

Daelin Schroeder showed up to volunteer.  She gave up her day off to be here.  

"If it was my child, I would want somebody to do the same for me," Schroeder said.

She's just one of hundreds who have been pouring through the woods surrounding Lake Callis in Davidson Township.

"I was here last night searching the perimeter of the area,” Schroeder said. “And then also I came back today and we did some searching."

Schroeder says she's not going to stop looking until they bring the missing little boy back home safe.  

"Mars" as he is affectionately called was last seen on Saturday attending a family picnic on July 4ht. 

"I guess I'm going to spend the rest of my day and see what other areas they need covered and basically stay as long as they need me," Schroeder said.

As for Mars' family, they're holding out hope.

If you have seen Omarion Humphrey or know where he might be call 911 or 810-732-4720.
