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

This afternoon, a witness spotted two men along a railroad line that runs along Route 20 in the Town of Friendship.

State Police, U.S. Marshals, officers from the Department of Environmental Conservation, State Parks Police, Allegany County Sheriff's Department and other local law enforcement are currently searching an area along I-86 and Route 20 in the Town of Friendship. Aviation, canine and special operation teams are assisting in the search.

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.

Anyone with any other information regarding the escape, is asked to 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.
