ANSONIA, CT (WFSB) -

The search continued for a student from Eastern Connecticut State University who has now been missing for more than three weeks.

Alyssiah Wiley's family said they will continue to look for her Tuesday the Hubbell Avenue neighborhood in Ansonia where she previously spent time.

"We as a family have been adamant about getting out and spreading that word that this is not a missing persons," said Wiley's mother Corrinna Martin.

State police said they still have no evidence of any foul play and treating the incident as missing person case.

"Because she would not walk away willingly. She has not tried contacting anyone in her family not of her friends," Martin said when asked why she thought Wiley was taken. "She has not used any resources available to her."

Martin said police searched the area in Ansonia recently, so she wanted to go back and see if anyone has any information.

Police said they are following up on several leads, and are urging anyone with information about Wiley's whereabouts to call police immediately at 860-537-7500.

Wiley, 20, was last seen April 20 when she told friends she was going home to West Haven for the weekend.

However, she wasn't reported missing until four days later when she failed to return to campus.

A massive search effort was then launched and searches were conducted on the ECSU campus in Willimantic as well as surrounding communities.

The family has previously searched Meriden's Hubbard Park and Bridgeport's Beardsley Park.

A march has also been scheduled on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. around the Beardsley Park Terrace neighborhood.

Wiley's mother is also selling T-shirts for her daughter for $8.
