Deputy's Quick Thinking Identifies Missing Cohoes Man in Schoharie

Written By Editor on 5/7/14 | 5/7/14


In a story first reported by News 10 ABC Monday afternoon, a missing Cohoes man was discovered in the Village of Schoharie earlier that day by an alert Schoharie County Sheriff's Deputy who observed the man bicycling through the municipality while on patrol. 

According to Sheriff Tony Desmond, Deputy Terry Minton was unaware that the subject was reported missing, but upon interviewing the man and learning of his name, further investigation led to a successful determination that he was, in fact, the missing individual. 

He was then taken to the Sheriff's Office, where the Cohoes Police Department was notified and they informed the man's family of his discovery. Family members would later come to the Sheriff's Office that night and took him home. 

Praising the work of the alert officer, Sheriff Desmond told the Schoharie News that, "Deputy Minton did a good job in recognizing that something was not right." The Sheriff would go on to add that the Deputy's actions, "saved the man's family from more concern about his whereabouts."

Wow, totally incorrect story. It was actually called in to the sheriffs department of someone who actually identified the person, and upon verification was called in to the sheriffs... Sorry, credit should be given to our local resident, not deputy..

Credit should be given to our local resident who was quick to identify this person and was quick to call it in when it was confirmed it was him..
