State Police recently excavated a piece of property on Cauterskill Road in Catskill in the search for Audrey May Herron (pictured). The search turned up negative results, they say. And while State Police have released very few details on what led them to the site some 14 years after Herron was last seen, public records point to a connection between the property and a mother and son with criminal histories. Pick up the May 27 edition for the full story. Above, a Trooper blocks traffic from traveling down Cauterskill Road on Wednesday, May 18 while State Police searched the property (Lance Wheeler photo).
