Manhunt Continues for Convicted Killer David Sweat

Saturday's search for escaped prisoner David Sweat continues to create roadblocks in Malone, New York.

State Police have set up a five mile perimeter in the area where they think Sweat might be. The intensified manhunt comes a day after sweat's fellow escapee
Richard Matt was shot and killed by border patrol.

Police say there were no sightings of sweat during the shootout with Matt but they say they have no reason to believe the two were not together.

It's unknown if david sweat is in possession of a firearm.
Officials do say they want sweat taken alive. The search is an enormous effort that's brought more than a thousand law enforcement personnel to the area.
