Cops search for man missing for nearly a decade
GLENVILLE -- On Wednesday, State Police used canines in the search for a man missing for nearly a decade.
Authorities were initially scheduled to conduct the search last week. Due to the snow that fell in the Capital Region, that search was postponed.
Local law enforcement were searching on Wednesday morning in connection with the disappearance of Craig Frear who went missing when he was 17. Frear was last seen on Sunday, June 27, 2004 walking along railroad tracks bordering the Cambridge Manor Apartments in Scotia. They were searching in the vicinity of Maple Avenue and Alplaus Avenue in Glenville. They say they are searching the area after receiving two leads following a search last spring of the wooded area behind the Glenville Price Chopper.
When he disappeared nearly a decade ago, police say Frear was seen wearing blue jeans, a short sleeve white t-shirt and white Adidas sneakers with three black stripes. He was also wearing a St. Christopher medal on a gold chain.
