A search team conducted amassive search for C.J.last week, but there has been no sign of the boy.

Meanwhile, Derrick Glover, the estranged husband of the boy's mother, is in jail charged with kidnapping, but he is not cooperating with police.

Monday morning, a Wake County District Court judge refused to lower Glover's $1 million bail.

The first scheduled hearing for Glover was rescheduled for Feb. 25. Glover's attorney Jeff Ellinger seized the moment before Judge James Fullwood to argue that police have no solid evidence to hold Glover on such a high bond.

The judge denied the motion.

Glover has kept silent about what he may know about CJ's disappearance. -->
