CALDWELL COUNTY, N.C. -- Investigators returned Friday to the area where a prosthetic leg believed to be 10-year-old Zahra Baker’s was found earlier this week.

The prosthetic was found off Christie Road in Caldwell County late Tuesday afternoon, Hickory Police Chief Tom Adkins said. Police are still working to positively confirm that it is Zahra’s prosthetic through a serial number.

Investigators haven’t said why they are returning to the Christie Road area or what specifically they are looking for there. Police did say that they received complaints of a foul odor in the area, but said they think it may have come from a dead animal found nearby.
Police have wrapped up their search of the yard around the Hickory home of Zahra, her father and her stepmother. Investigators spent Wednesday and Thursday digging up areas around the home. They photographed and removed several items from the ground and collected them in plastic bags, but have not said what those items are.
