The Sub Inspector had arrived at his residence in Badalkumbura on the morning of 02 March and his wife had confirmed that he had the bag in his possession.
However, the water in the well near the house has been removed and tested, and the surrounding forest areas have also been inspected.
So far no information was received regarding the missing bag.
Police are also uncovering information regarding the suspect's bus and its passengers from Colombo to Moneragala.
It is reported that CCTV footage shows him walking towards the Kelani River near the lodge where the Sub Inspector was staying with the girl.
Accordingly, the bottom of the Kelani River in that area is being inspected today.
DNA samples of the murdered girl and her mother were referred for investigation and it is reported that it will take about a week to receive its report.
