After the search was suspended for the missing 21-year-old daughter of Jon Schmidt, the Piano Guys musician insists he's not giving up just yet.

As reported, Anna Schmidt disappeared while hiking in Oregon on October 16.

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office issued a statement on Sunday, revealing that "no signs of Anna Schmidt have been found," and the search had been dropped after teams scoured over 150 miles.

Meanwhile, volunteers continue to search for the girl, as well as dogs brought in from Phoenix, FOX411 reports.

Anna's mother, Michelle Schmidt, confessed that she believes her daughter to be dead.

"I don't think she's still alive," she told KOIN 6. "I don't think she's survived. Honestly, that brings me comfort knowing she is with her Heavenly Father, that she's not hurting, that she's not suffering. But we do want to find her body."


But Anna's father remains hopeful.

"Although the local authorities have suspended the official search, we are not giving up and are organizing our own efforts," he posted on The Piano Guys' Facebook page Monday.

Portland Police said authorities' search would resume if credible leads are found.
