Obstacles hinder hunt for escapees
Searchers hunting for two escaped killers were contending with steep slopes, thick woods, sticky bogs, biting bugs and the possibility that the pair on the lam from prison for 19 days are armed.
Police said they remained almost certain that inmates David Sweat and Richard Matt spent time recently at a hunting camp near Owls Head, about 20 miles west of Clinton County Correctional Facility, where they were imprisoned before they were found missing June 6. A hunter said he saw a f igure bolting from the cabin on Saturday morning. But after days of intense searching, police still have no substantiated sightings of Sweat and Matt.
