Listen to this story
State officials are asking hunters in the town of Piercefield in southern St. Lawrence county to be on the look out for any sign of Colin Gillis.

The 18 year old man from Tupper Lake vanished in early March while walking on state route 3. A massive search effort turned up no clues about his fate.

The Conservation Department says "hunters and others bushwacking in the woods" in the area should be alert for any sign of the missing man.

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.

Anyone with information about Collin Gillis should call state police in Ray Brook at 518 -- 897 -- 2000.
