Trying to Find the Bear Spotted in Cohoes

The search continues for the bear that was spotted in Cohoes.

After a couple of sightings that kept schoolchildren inside the building for the day, the bear was spotted along the Cohoes section of the Mohawk and Hudson River bike-way on Wednesday.

Paula Ahearn says she saw it and got a good look as she was headed off to work.

State DEC officials say they know where the bear is, and are keeping close tabs and monitoring the situation.

They advise people to just leave it alone if they see it, and call police.

Make sure your trash is secure too and also bring your bird feeders in.

The bike-way was blocked off on Wednesday night.

DEC says it's not unusual to see a bear wander into the city in search of food.
