Police are still searching for Chicago woman Taylor Casey after she went missing in the Bahamas roughly three weeks ago.

Casey was last seen on June 19 on Paradise Island in Nassau, where she traveled to attend the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat. The retreat confirmed Casey's disappearance after she didn't show up for class on June 20.

According to CNN, investigators in the Bahamas are employing search dogs, marine teams, and flight crews in the search for Casey.

Earlier in the search, Police Commissioner Clayton Fernander said a police dog picked up a scent from a tent and tracked it to a body of water. The search crew found Casey's cell phone in the water the following day and asked American authorities to help access the phone's content.

Casey’s mother, Colette Seymore, traveled to the Bahamas last week to try to get answers regarding her daughter's disappearance.

“I had to return home without her,” Seymore said in a statement. “This is every mother’s worst nightmare.”

The family is urging the FBI to take over the missing person investigation.

“I felt an urgent need to return because without U.S. government support, we may never find out what happened to my Taylor," Seymore said.
