LAKE PLACID — Police are expanding the search for Seth Kilburn, who has been missing since Sunday.
Lake Placid Police Chief Bill Moore was briefing a team of search crews Wednesday morning.
The search command center is set up at the Lake Placid Fire Station, according the Chief’s Assistant Stacey Tempestilli.
“They are broadening the search today, looking toward River Road,” she said in a brief interview.
“Volunteers met at the firehouse this morning. Anyone who wants to help can go to the Lake Placid Fire Department.”
Firefighter and driver Greg Hayes said about 25 people met for a morning briefing on search techniques.
Search teams will head south of the village first.
“If anyone wants to help, they can check in here — we can find out where to send them,” Hayes said.
He said searchers should wear long pants and hiking boots, if they have them.
"Bring a backpack with water and snacks and a flashlight, just in case.”
Lake Placid Police are directing the search with assistance from the Department of Environmental Conservation, Hayes said as the community-wide effort to find the missing 35-year-old father of two young children went into a third day.
Kilburn was last seen after leaving Wise Guys, a bar in the Village of Lake Placid, at about 1 a.m. Sunday.
He is described as a white male with brown hair and eyes, is 5 foot 11 inches tall and weighs 195 pounds.
He was last seen wearing a blue-and-white striped polo shirt and tan- or khaki-colored shorts. He also wears eyeglasses.
Anyone who may have seen Kilburn is asked to call Lake Placid Police at 523-3306.
The phone number at the Fire Department search command center, located at 456 Old Military Road, is 523-3211.
