CAPITAL REGION, N.Y. (NEWS10) — New York State Police have been searching for Andrew Gibson since he skipped his February sentencing date. Yet they still hope that more help from the public will help bring him to justice.

The Westerlo man had previously pleaded guilty to charges of aggravated vehicular homicide and two counts of bodily injury for a 2021 DWI crash on Route 401 in Westerlo that injured several people and claimed the life of Lisa Sperry, a devoted wife and mother of three boys.

NEWS10’s Anya Tucker spoke with Laura Ingelston and her husband Richard Sweet after Gibson was a no-show in court. Laura is Lisa’s sister. At the time, the couple made a desperate plea for the public’s help in locating the man who caused Lisa’s death.

“Pretty much walked free,” said Sweet. “That’s not fair.”

New York State Police say their interview on NEWS10 helped motivate viewers and readers, who began sending numerous tips. “The public has been a huge help with this investigation,” said New York State Police Investigator Michael Altieri. “We get leads several times a week.”

Altieri says Gibson is now a wanted man, and his information has been shared with federal law enforcement partners such as the U.S. Marshals Service. He’s facing eight to 25 years behind bars. He posted a hefty $160,000 bond to make bail, and that’s why he was able to remain free until his February sentencing date.

An Albany County spokesperson told NEWS10 that up until he went missing, Gibson had cooperated with the department of probation and gave no indication that he planned on skipping his court date. He is described as a white man standing 6-feet, 3-inches tall, and weighing 235 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes.

“We have a general idea as to where he is,” said Altieri. “We are going to bring him to justice.”

Anyone with information on Gibson’s whereabouts to call their local law enforcement office or the New York State Police.
