Provincial police officers from the emergency response unit are searching in Oxford County alongside Highway 401.

Oxford police Const. Laurie-Anne Maitland says police are not searching the area as the result of a tip.

Maitland says it "just makes sense" to search along Canada's busiest highway.

An extensive ground search also continues in Wellington County near Guelph, about an hour away from Woodstock, as police continue to comb through a vast rural area.

The eight-year-old girl, better known as Tori, went missing April 8 on her way home from school in Woodstock.
