CLEVELAND -- Police have called off the search for missing teen Gina DeJesus Friday night.
Cleveland Police and the FBI were at a house on West 50th most of the day Friday, searching through the house and tearing up the garage at the house.
Teams searched inside and outside the house since just after 10 this morning. Shortly after noon, they began digging up the floor inside the garage of the house searching for evidence. Slabs of concrete were placed outside the garage once they were cut into pieces.
At a late afternoon press conference, Commander Ed Tomba of the Cleveland Police Department said once the 3-4 foot sections are removed a backhoe will be brought in to scrape the top layer.
"We will do this slow and very methodically. We'll pull back each layer," said Tomba.
Cleveland city Service Department employees assisted in taking out the concrete from the garage.
A cadaver dog named Elliott Ness from the Geauga County Sheriff's Office searched the garage.
According to Cleveland Police Lieutenant Thomas Stacho, two people were arrested in the investigation in connection with the disappearance of Gina DeJesus, but right now, both should be released sometime this weekend.
"We have information which implicates both individuals," Lt. Stacho told an afternoon news conference.
One of those arrested was the owner of the house, 35-year-old Matthew Hurayt. He was arrested on an unrelated kidnapping warrant.
The other was 53-year-old John McDonough of the same address.
In 1990, Hurayt was convicted for sexual battery against two boys, aged 4 and 6. He spent 10 years in prison. Click here to watch more on Hurayt
At this afternoon's news conference Commander Tomba said police have talked to the contractor who poured the concrete in the garage being searched.
Tomba said the contractor was very cooperative and told police he saw nothing unusual in the garage when the floor was poured.
Tomba also said several other individuals who lived in the house were questioned, but not arrested. He did not know whether any other former sexual offenders lived in the house with Hurayt.
A Police command bus arrived on the street around 10 a.m., which has been blocked off by officers. Hundreds of neighbors have gathered outside the police line.
It has been a difficult day for the DeJesus family.
Gina's mother convinced she is alive
Police and the FBI woke up Nancy Ruiz who told her they were searching a house on the west side looking for her daughter.
According to Ruiz, this is different than past tips that police have acted on. In the past, she has not been visited by officers. Rather, she got a call once any discovery was made.
“It’s not her,” Ruiz said. “I think it if it would have been her, I would have felt it. I’m still hoping she will be walking into my door.”

At this time, she is not planning on going to the area where police are searching. Gina's aunt was on the scene Friday morning.
Ruiz also wanted people to remember Amanda Berry and her family. Berry, who lived near DeJesus, went missing April 21, 2003.
Gina DeJesus has been missing since April 2, 2004.
