​Evidence search - 2019

NEMSAR was asked to assist the NYS Police Major Crimes/Cold Case division to search an area of  renewed interest in East Glenville, New York for Craig Frear who has been missing since 2004.  NEMSAR asked us if we would help.

The Team was requested directly by the NYS DEC Forest Ranger of Rensselaer County to help with a missing 44yo male that was last seen in the morning on Friday August 10th.  According to family, he was depressed due to a recent separation.  He was found on Sunday August 12th.
