ROCK COUNTY (WKOW) -- Rock County crews have resumed the search for a 9-year-old girl on the Rock River Monday morning.

The team is focusing on the area near the Afton boat launch, the same spot they were Sunday.

The County Sheriff's Office confirmed it would be out searching the river for at least the remainder of the week.

Deputies said a Wisconsin-based non-profit would aid in search efforts Monday afternoon using a boat equipped with an underwater camera.

Family members say Madison Billups was last seen in the water near Angler's Park in Janesville Thursday night.

Authorities changed their response Friday from a rescue to a recovery and continued searching the Rock River throughout the weekend.

The Rock County Sheriff's Office told 27 News the crews are monitoring weather Monday as storms could move in later in the day.
