Authorities are expected to resume the search for a West Michigan baby who's been missing for two years.

Katherine Phillips hasn't been seen since June 29, 2011. She was 4 ½ months old.

Katherine's father, Sean Phillips, was convicted last year of unlawful imprisonment in the case and sentenced to prison. Police are treating his daughter's disappearance as a homicide.

Katherine lived with her mother, Ariel Courtland, in Ludington, about 80 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.

Police have said they plan to resume the search for the infant's remains on Friday and Saturday.

Investigators believe botanical evidence found on the shoes of Sean Phillips could lead them to the body.
