Tupper Lake (WWTI) -- Hunters and others in the woods in the town of Piercefield in St. Lawrence County and the town of Tupper Lake in Franklin County are being asked to look for and report signs of Colin Gillis.
Colin Gillis, 18, of Tupper Lake, was last seen on March 10, 2012, walking on State Route 3 between the communities of Tupper Lake and Piercefield. He is 6 feet tall and weighs 170 pounds.
Mr. Gillis 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 and orange and black day pack.
Officials say Hunters have been helpful in the past locating and reporting signs of lost or missing persons in the woods. Leaves are off the trees and shrubs at this time of year, hunters seek game in areas that most people do not enter and hunters are keen observers as they hunt.
Hunters or anyone else that find any items that Colin Gillis may have been wearing or carrying are asked to contact State Police at 518-897-2000 or the DEC Dispatch at 518-897-1300.
