CAPITAL REGION -- The search party for Jaliek Rainwalker is taking the week off after finding two unusual images over the weekend.

The 12-year-old has been missing for nearly six months now.

The search for the Greenwich boy shifted downstream this weekend, with volunteers combing the Hudson from Troy to Albany.

Texas EquuSearch volunteers from Ohio brought in a side-scan sonar to search parts of the river that haven't been combed over yet.

Jaliek's former care taker Elaine Person -- who is part of the search -- said that two "unusual" images were picked up by the side-scan sonar during Sunday's search.

A copy of the sonar reading has been sent to Greenwich police, but Chief George Bell said he's not an expert so he has passed it along to State Police.

Police will then determine if they will send divers to check the bottom of the river based on those images.

One sonar reading was taken behind Jaliek's grandfather's place of business., near Troy behind Mooradians. The second sonar reading was taken right under the Hoosick Street Bridge.

No more searching is scheduled for this week. Friends and family are holding a bake sale Thursday on South Pearl Street to raise money for the search.
