continued State Police are working with the Department of Environmental Conservation to conduct ground searches, divers have checked and ruled out a swimming hole nicknamed “the deep hole” and ruled it out, and aerial searches are being conducted as long as weather permits, Tibbits said.
“At this point we don’t have anything we’d call a solid lead,” Tibbits said.
Joining the police and DEC in the search are state DEC forest rangers, Essex County Sheriff’s Office, Ticonderoga Police Department and Crown Point Volunteer Fire Department are conducting an organized search in the Peasley Road area around where Gill's vehicle was located. A command post has been established at the firehouse in Ironville.
Gill is described as a 6’1 male with blonde hair and hazel eyes, weighing about 230 lbs.
Anyone with information is asked to call the State Police in Lewis at 873-2750.
