A month and a half into a landfill search and there is still no sign of a missing Glendale girl.
Crews continued to sift through trash today looking for evidence of 5-year-old Jhessye Shockley.
Cadaver dogs are assisting in the search.
"One of the motivators this week is we are very, very close to the address and the area of where we believe Jhessye's body was disposed of," said Officer Tracey Breeden with the Glendale Police Department.
Breeden said they are going through about 40 to 50 truckloads of trash per day.
Jhessye hasn't been seen since October.
Investigators believe she was killed and her body was dumped in a trash bin in Tempe.
