NORFOLK, Va. - Wednesday marks day 24, and still no sign of Codi Bigsby.

The search for missing 4-year-old Codi continues Wednesday. Volunteers with Water Team Inc., have been expanding the search area in recent days.

They are searching in the Berkley section of Norfolk.

Neighbors say this is where Codi's father, Cory Bigsby, used to live.

If Codi is not found today, the group will head over to Hampton Thursday and Newport News on Friday.

Hampton Police released a new photo of Codi Tuesday that was taken in 2021.

Cory Bigsby was arrested on child neglect charges stemming from incidents that go back well over a month. He had a bond appeal hearing set for February 25 at the Hampton City Circuit Court. News 3 learned Wednesday that the appeal hearing will not take place and no new date has been set, according to Cory's attorney, Jeff Ambrose. He says a new judge has been appointed after it was reported that Hampton judges had recused themselves from hearing the case.

The community has continued to help search for Codi throughout the city. A wall in front of the Buckroe Point apartments honoring Codi has since grown with several people leaving posters and balloons to keep Codi’s name alive.

If you have any information on Codi's whereabouts, call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP (1-888-562-5887).
