Sheriff: Manhunt for fugitive is now a recovery effort

September 19, 2018 12:09 PM

The manhunt for a fugitive considered armed and dangerous has transitioned to a recovery effort.

Authorities don't believe David Clyde Morgan, who has been missing since July 18, is living in the woods or in the area of Route 63 in Geneseo. At this point, US Marshals, state police, and Livingston County Sheriff's deputies are looking for his body in the cornfield where he disappeared.

Morgan's girlfriend Sandra Brown, who was with him at the time of the incident and taken into custody, says Morgan wanted to go out "Bonnie and Clyde style." Morgan also told his family that he was suicidal due to a drug charge and they would never see him again.

Portions of Route 63 in Geneseo will be closed "periodically" on Wednesday as part of the search. The closures will affect Route 63 starting at the intersection of 20A to Jones Bridge Road. About 60 officers from multiple agencies will be involved in the operation.

Morgan is accused of pulling a gun on a Geneseo police officer on July 18. He fled the scene and has not been seen since despite a nationwide search.
