Volunteers searching since Christmas for Laci Peterson have closed their command center and today and called off plans to push the search into Southern California.
A spokeswoman for Peterson´s family says they feel they accomplished their goal — which was to get the missing pregnant woman´s picture out.
Organizers say they called off the Los Angeles search because of a Modesto Bee story that cited anonymous sources implying police believe Peterson´s husband may have been involved in her disappearance.
Police have repeatedly said Scott Peterson is not a suspect. But they say he has been less than cooperative.
Laci Peterson was reported missing by her husband on Christmas Eve. She is due to deliver a baby boy on February tenth.
