Default Searchers seek AZ escapee in vast northern Montana

HELENA, Mont. (AP) - The search for an escaped Arizona inmate and his fiancee turned Wednesday to a valley in northern Montana near the Canadian border, where the 10,000-foot mountains of Glacier National Park meet the vast, open Great Plains.

Border agents stopped vehicles leaving the United States, scanning the faces of the occupants to see whether they match the description of the fugitives, who apparently have dyed their hair to try to disguise themselves. Even with the tightened security, the wild, open land and the porous border could make it easy for the pair to slip into Canada.

Officials on both sides of the border said Wednesday they did not believe Arizona escapee John McCluskey and his suspected accomplice, Casslyn Welch, had crossed into Canada. The search was concentrated on the Babb-St. Mary valley 10 miles south of the border, Glacier County Undersheriff Jeff Fauque said.

Welch was last spotted Sunday at a restaurant in St. Mary on the eastern border of Glacier National Park, Fauque said.

"We've had multiple, I guess you could call them leads, that we've checked out in the area. In layman's terms, none of those have panned out," Fauque said. "Tremendous resources have been spent on this search; hopefully they are caught really soon."

Officials with the U.S. Marshals Service, Glacier County Sheriff's Office, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, U.S. Customs and Border Protection have blanketed the area of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation.

"We're doing outbound checks at ports of entry to ensure any fugitive is unable to utilize that avenue of escape," U.S. Customs and Border Patrol spokesman Mike Milne said late Tuesday.

A U.S. Border Patrol helicopter joined the search Tuesday, but authorities on both sides of the border acknowledged it was impossible to completely secure it.

You are sad that these people may be caught, killed or die of exposure? Do you know what these people have done?

Police in the U.S. are 'pulling out all the stops' to catch a self-styled Bonnie-and-Clyde duo who are leaving a murderous trail behind them while on the run from authorities.
John McCluskey, 45, and 44-year-old Casslyn Welch - described as McCluskey's cousin and fiancee - have been linked to a double homicide of a couple in New Mexico.

You know as I was posting that icon I wondered if anyone would interpret it that way.
I thought my words sounded cold and needed an icon.

There's nothing cold about wanting a murderer dead. But that's just me.

"described as McCluskey's cousin and fiancee"

That pretty much describes it all.

Living about halfway between Yellowstone and Glacier, I wonder how close these two were to me when they passed by?

So do you think they must have missed the Boggie movie? Or they just thought they'd take their chances?

I wonder what kind of reward there is for these two. I've been out of work for quite some time and could use the money. Maybe I should load my guns into the car and go on a HUNT? I think I can afford a few gallons of gas, and Glacier is only a 3 hour drive.
