Toronto police searched the farm of suspected killer Dellen Millard for a third straight day Wednesday, as they continue to seek evidence related to the 2012 disappearance of Laura Babcock.

Investigators reportedly used rakes and shovels on the 100-acre farm, though it's not clear whether they found anything. 

Police confirmed to media outlets that they were tipped off by phone records, which revealed multiple calls between Millard and 23-year-old Babcock, including the final ones before she went missing. The pair was reportedly involved in a sexual relationship, according to The Globe and Mail.

On Tuesday, Babcock's uncle, Thomas Ryan, waited outside the farm during the search and vented about the lack of new information.

"There’s no information. There hasn’t been any information since she disappeared," he told The Toronto Star. "It’s difficult. We try to carry on with our lives as best we can."

Police turned their attention to Millard, the 28-year-old heir of a family aviation business, as a suspect in Babcock's presumed murder after picking him up for another crime. He and friend Mark Smich were charged in May with first-degree murder in the death of Tim Bosma, a 32-year-old husband and father from Ancaster, Ontario. Bosma's burned remains were reportedly discovered on Millard's farm.

Officials are also re-examining the death of Millard's father Wayne, whose 2012 gunshot death had initially been ruled a suicide.

Deepak Paradkar, Millard’s lawyer, told The Star that Toronto police have never approached his client to discuss Babcock, or the apparent suicide of Millard's father.

On his 14th birthday in 1999, Millard became the youngest Canadian to pilot a helicopter and an airplane solo on the same day. Millardair, started by his grandfather Carl, was incorporated in 1963 and steadily grew to eventually encompass a 21-plane fleet. The company operated out of Toronto's main airport until it filed for bankruptcy in 1990, the CBC reported, at which time it switched over to become an aircraft maintenance and servicing firm. Millard inherited the company and became CEO after his father's death.
