Search teams are back in the woods of northern New York looking for two convicted murderers who broke out of a maximum-security prison a week and a half ago.
The more than 800 law enforcement officers searching for David Sweat and Richard Matt have steadily shifted their focus eastward along Route 374 leading from the village of Dannemora, home to Clinton Correctional Facility. The 11th day of searching began Tuesday with roadblocks still in place in some spots and teams of officers making their way through woods in the neighboring town of Plattsburgh.
Police say Route 374 is expected to remain closed at least through Tuesday.
State police say they've received more than 1,000 leads, but so far there have been no confirmed sightings of the escapees.
