Police say troopers in Danielson are continuing their search in the woods for 18-year-old Todd Allen, who was last seen leaving his home at 42 Dixon Road in Sterling, at around 1 p.m. on Monday, December 26. He had left on his Honda XR100 dirt bike in an unknown direction of travel.

Police say that while search and rescue teams appreciate the assistance of the search parties, they are now asking them to exit the woods and check in with the fire department or state police. It is because the less people in the search area, the better able the police dogs can conduct a search.

Police say that Allen frequents the Rails to Trails bike path which goes from Sterling into Coventry, Rhode Island, as well as near Ross Pond.
