(York) -- Police in York County say they've run out of places to search for a missing 7-month-old boy and they're asking the public's help with information about the man charged with kidnapping him.

Upper Darby Police Chief Michael Chitwood says searches of a landfill and park near York a day earlier didn't produce leads about the location of Hamza Ali.

Police say they're hoping someone in the York and Lancaster area will remember seeing 30-year-old Ummad Rushdi or Rushdi's brother Jawwad in the days after Hamza disappeared August 4th.

Ummad Rushdi is accused of kidnapping Hamza from a home in Upper Darby. He was the boyfriend of Hamza's mother, Zainab Gaal.

Police have said Jawwad Rushdi told them Ummad Rushdi admitted shaking the boy to death and burying him.
