Multiple agencies will continue to search on Tuesday for a 53-year-old missing Rochester teacher. 

East Rochester Police Chief Steve Clancy says Ellice Harding was last seen getting off a RTS bus at 9:48 a.m. Friday at the Eastview Mall in Victor. Surveillance footage shows Harding walking from Sears, along mall property on Rte. 96 towards High Street, before she went out of view of the camera.

Chief Clancy says taking the bus was out of the norm for Harding because she has a car. The chief says she left her car and cell phone at the Wilson Foundation Academy where she worked when she left there Friday.

Monday's search consists of about 50 people and includes air, ground, water and K-9 support.

According to a Facebook post by the Rochester Teachers Association, Harding's daughter says her mother spent a lot of time at Powder Mills Park in Pittsford. Search parties spent the day there Sunday but did not find any sign of Harding.

Harding lives in East Rochester. She is approximately 5'1" and 110 lbs. Police say she was last seen wearing a black coat, a white/grey and purple cardigan with black pants. 

Chief Clancy says Harding was carrying a duffel bag when she was last seen.

if you have any information on Harding's whereabouts, investigators ask that you call 911.
