Two men aged 29 and 36 have been arrested in connection with the incident and have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
Police are still urging witnesses to come forward.
Detective Chief Inspector Tony Yarwood said: “We are doing all we can to bring those responsible for Hayley’s murder to justice and this most recent search is just one of many lines of enquiry.
“Although it has been two week’s since Hayley’s death, the pain and grief felt by her family is still very raw. At the heart of this investigation is a young mother who should still be here with her two children and we cannot forget that.
“So far we have spoken to some really helpful people, however, I have no doubt in my mind that someone out there knows who did this. Someone knows what happened to Hayley, someone knows why it happened and someone knows who took her life. I want to reassure those people that it isn’t too late to get in touch and any information that you can provide will still be extremely important to this investigation.
“It may be that you feel that you cannot call police or feel that there may be repercussions if you do. I would like to reassure you that the information you provide to us will be treated confidentially and you also have the option of calling Crimestoppers anonymously too.
“We are appealing for any information that might help us, even the smallest detail. Following the incident two men, who both had their hoods up, left the scene in a dark coloured hatchback car that was parked nearby and was seen in Northfield Avenue and Coventry Road shortly after. If you know anything about that car or its occupants please call us.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101.
