Officials: Be On Lookout For Missing Teen
State police and Department of Environmental Conservation officials are asking people hunting in the Piercefield and Tupper Lake areas to keep an eye out for a teenager who's been missing since March.
Eighteen year old Colin Gillis of Tupper Lake went missing on March 10. He was last seen walking on State Route 3 between Tupper Lake and Piercefield.
Officials are asking for anyone who will be in the area to keep an eye out for Gillis or any items he may have had with him.
He's six feet tall and weighs 170 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white American Eagle v-neck shirt with black stripes and short sleeves, blue Levi boot cut jeans, and red Nike Air high-top sneakers.
He may also have been wearing a reversible black or red L.L. Bean coat and carrying an orange and black day pack.
DEC forest rangers, state police, local emergency response agencies, and area search and rescue teams were assisted by hundreds of volunteers searching for Gillis last March.
Together, they spent seven days searching more than 2,000 acres of lands, miles of the Raquette River, and both Raquette Pond and Piercefield Flow.
Volunteers alone spent around 10,000 hours in the search.
Anyone who finds anything is asked to contact state police at 518-897-2000 or DEC dispatch at 518-897-1300.
