ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY, N.Y. -- New York State Police and the DEC continue to search for the 18-year-old who disappeared over the weekend in St. Lawrence County.
Authorities say Colin Gillis was last seen late Saturday night by a passerby, walking down Route 3 in Tupper Lake toward Piercefield.
He is described as 6-foot-1, 170 pounds and was last seen wearing a white shirt with black stripes, blue jeans and red sneakers.
On Wednesday, 17 DEC Forest Rangers along with New York State Police and 120 well-prepared volunteers helped to search some of the last areas within one-mile of where Gillis was last seen. An Aviation Helicopter, Dive Teams, K-9 Units and a DEC Airboat were also used in the search.
For Wednesday, search efforts will focus on Raquette Pond, Piercefield Flow and the Raquette River.
