Police in Doral, Florida, are looking for a 43-year-old woman and her 9-year-old daughter, who’ve been missing for more than a week, PEOPLE confirms.

On Friday, officers found the girl’s distraught father Gustavo Castano sitting in a truck parked outside the same Miami-area Home Depot where he told investigators he’d allegedly dropped Liliana Moreno, 43, and her 9-year-old daughter, Daniela, off on the morning on May 30.

Police claim Castano’s body was riddled with self-inflicted knife wounds. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment, according to investigators.

The search for the pair continued through the weekend, with teams of volunteers sifting through a warehouse, several dumpsters, a lake, and a number of wooded areas.

Officers continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the disappearances of the woman and her daughter and no charges have been filed in the case, a police spokeswoman tells PEOPLE.

Police have recovered Moreno’s purse, wallet and car, which they found at her Doral apartment.

Castano is considered a person of interest in this missing persons case, the spokeswoman confirms.
