ENP STAFF REPORTS

The New York State Police is investigating the possible sightings of two men in Steuben County who may fit the description of Clinton Correctional Facility escapees David Sweat and Richard Matt.

Witnesses spotted two men on June 13 walking near the Gang Mills rail yard on Rita's Way in the town of Erwin. The next day, two men with the same description were spotted walking along County Route 115 in the town of Lindley, heading toward the Pennsylvania Border.

Earlier this week, State Police investigators were in both communities conducting interviews in an effort to verify the sightings. The investigators have also obtained surveillance camera video of the two men, which was inconclusive. The video is now being sent to Albany for further analysis to determine if the lead is credible.

While this is an unconfirmed sighting, the State Police is asking residents who live in this area along the New York-Pennsylvania border to be on alert. If these men are spotted, please call 911 immediately. Do not approach, as both are considered to be very dangerous.

If anyone has any other information regarding the escape, please call 1-800-GIVETIP. New York State is offering a reward of $50,000 for information that leads to the capture of either suspect ($100,000 for both). The U.S. Marshals Service has placed Sweat and Matt on their 15 Most Wanted Fugitives List, and is also offering a $25,000 reward for information that leads to the capture of either suspect.
