Crews end day 2 of search for Lusher's remains


BECKET, Mass. - Search crews with the Massachusetts State Police, New York State Police, and Deptartment of Environmental Conservation wrapped up the second day of search for the remains of 16-year-old James 'Jamie' Lusher with no results.

Even with finding no evidence, police say information obtained by Lusher's confessed killer, Lewis Lent, is credible. On Wednesday, police also expanded their search to a wider section of Greenwater Pond in Becket which spans 88 acres and is almost 60 feet deep in some areas.

Police say their search on Tuesday focused on the west side of the pond, where convicted killer Lewis Lent says he put the body of the teen more than 20 years ago.

State Police Divers will be back at 8:30 a.m. Thursday for a third and final day of searching.

Lusher went missing from Westfield, Mass. in November 1992 after leaving his home on a bicycle ride.
