The search is ongoing for a Sanford family who have been missing for more than three weeks.
Jill Sidebotham, 2-year-old Lydia Hansen and Nicholas Hansen were last seen about 4 p.m. July 2 at the Walmart in Mexico, according to the Sanford Police Department.
Sanford police Lt. Matthew Gagne said Monday that the three were staying at Coos Canyon Campground in Byron on June 29. But they have not been seen or heard from since July 2.
Jill Sidebotham, Lydia Hansen and Nicholas Hansen were expected to return to the Sanford area last month, and they were reported missing after family and friends failed to hear from them.

They were last seen driving a silver 2005 Volkswagen Jetta with a Maine license plate reading 1563VJ.
