HIGHLAND FALLS, N.Y. -- Police spent all day Friday searching in Highland Falls for the man they say robbed a Trustco Bank in Albany County at gun point Wednesday. Their search in the Highland Falls area came to a close at sun down.
While his car was found in Highland Falls Friday, police are still looking Victor Shear, 45. Officers say he's five feet six inches tall, about 135 pounds, last seen in light green cargo pants, a blue hoodie and a blue baseball cap.
The search came to Orange County Thursday after police in Albany County were looking for Shear, but were unable to find him. Sources say he was last seen in Rockland County.
Police say Shear may be armed, so if you see him, do not approach him.
Police are now using helicopters to help in their search.
Mine Road was closed for most of Friday, but has since been re-opened.
If you see Shear or anything suspicious, you are asked to call Monroe State Police at (845) 782-8311.
