(Harrisburg) -- Police are resuming their search for a missing 7-month-old boy, including an area often visited by a man accused of kidnapping the child.

Upper Darby Police Chief Michael Chitwood says a lieutenant and three detectives were in York and Lancaster counties to continue their search for Hamza Ali, the child missing since August 4th.

Chitwood says investigators are checking a nature area not far from the home of 30-year-old Ummad Rushdi. Police say Rushdi's brother told them Rushdi admitted shaking the boy to death, then burying him.

A search warrant issued today for Rushdi's York home says police earlier recovered a shirt with a blood-like stain.
