Police investigating the disappearance of Amy Sue Pagnac, a 13-year-old Minnesota girl who went missing in 1989, are now digging up her parents' yard in hopes of finding evidence that could put an end to the 25-year-old cold case.

Authorities in Maple Grove, Minnesota, reportedly showed up at the home of Pagnac's mother and stepfather, Susan Pagnac and Marshall Midden, Sunday and told them to pack a bag and leave, according to

"They came in, they told us what they wanted to do, were very polite, very helpful. I have a broken foot, one even helped pack a luggage so I didn’t have to lift a finger," Susan Pagnac told ABC News.

On Monday, authorities excavated part of the lawn, searched the home, and blocked off the street in front of the home to outside traffic, though they provided no information as to what sparked the new investigation, according to The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have reportedly joined in the search, along with the Maple Grove Police Department, according to KSTP-TV.

Midden is the last known person to have seen Amy Sue Pagnac before she disappeared. He told officials that she went missing after he stopped at a gas station in Osseo, Minnesota, to use the restroom on Aug. 5, 1989. The girl's mother said she believes her daughter could still be alive, just like the three women who were rescued last year after they were kidnapped and held captive in Cleveland, Ohio, for a decade.

"There’s never been a moment that we give up on her," Pagnac told ABC News. "How do you do that? The worst thing is the concept that someone you know is a victim of trafficking, like that guy in Ohio having her. Those are very scary thoughts. But once they are found, those individuals will recover."

Pagnac told that authorities also searched her home in 2007 but took less than a day to go through the property at the time. She added that officers also searched a farm in Isanti County, too, during that time
