"This has involved additional searching around the edges of Alexandra and speaking with residents in the area.
"The work and new information obtained has led Police to believe Caitlin is not in the area being searched and while she may be in the Galloway area, she has possibly travelled outside of Alexandra."
Police have been unable to locate Caitlin and are now appealing to the public to help.
Caitlin is described as being of medium build, 175cm tall, and is believed to be wearing a black jacket, black jeans, black boots and a dark green jersey.
Caitlin could be in the greater Otago area or beyond.
"Her family and Police are concerned for her welfare."
