Maple Grove Police continued to process the scene Tuesday at the home where Amy Sue Pagnac lived when she was last seen in 1989.

Law enforcement executed a search warrant at the home Sunday. They continued to remain tight-lipped as to why they were actively investigating at the home, which is still owned by the parents of Amy Sue Pagnac.

Maple Grove Police Captain Keith Terlinden said very little about the search warrant and investigation during a briefing on Tuesday. "We are working hard to bring Amy home," he said.

Terlinden said they are not naming suspects and no digging has been going on at the home.

Terlinden believes with the amount of technology available today it may help turn up more information in the case. "None of us had cellphones, none of us were tweeting. We weren't using Facebook. The amount of technology that is here today that we didn't have in '89, we cannot even compare," he said.

He said they planned to use all resources available.

"Every day we work, we are closer to finding Amy. It's our goal to find her and I think we will find her," Terlinden said.

Amy Sue Pagnac was last seen at a gas station in Osseo in her non-biological father's vehicle on Aug. 5, 1989.

Her mother hopes police will find new clues in the recent search at their home.

Police expect to be on the scene until at least Friday.
