LACEYVILLE – State police in Tunkhannock and rescue crews are investigating a bloody crime scene that spreads throughout a borough in Wyoming County.
State police said they’re looking for a man that went missing Sunday around 2:30 a.m., and think he might be in the Susquehanna River.
Police are searching for Thomas Yates, 46, from Long Island, New York. Yates was in town attending a funeral.
After the funeral, several family members reportedly went back to a home in Laceyville, where an argument broke out.
Blood stains were found along Church Street, and near the Laceyville Bridge, near where Yates was last seen.
Yates was described by police as being 5′ 4″ tall, and weighing 140 pounds, with brown hair, brown eyes and a mustache. He was last seen on the Laceyville Bridge wearing a dark-colored suit. According to reports, he has cerebral palsy and walks with a pronounced limp.
Police told Newswatch 16 that two people were being questioned at the state police barracks near Tunkhannock in relation to the incident.
Officials said water rescue teams had to stop their search due to the water levels rising in the river.
