"I wish he would have gave up a long time ago and i wish he would have stayed where he was instead of leaving there with that guy. I was kind of scared that that guy was going to kill him when he got done with him."
David Sweat.. shot and captured -- Sunday about 2 miles away from the Canadian border.

"They haven't said nothing they didn't event let us know that they captured him alls we know is the guys that were here guarding us, from him and that other guy just got up and left so we knew right then and there they had gotten him somehow."

"I'm glad they caught him but I'm sorry for what the communities went through as well as myself and my family."
