More than 800 law enforcement officers are searching the area around the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora. They're expanding the search area and going door-to-door today.

State police remained stationed overnight at intervals everywhere in the wooded search area. A series of lights illuminated both a roadway and fields where officers had conducted more grid searches.

The manhunt has residents on edge and authorities say there are no new leads.
