'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

BELLEFONTE — The Pennsylvania State Police are taking over the search for a missing central Pennsylvania prosecutor who declined to prosecute former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Former Centre County District Attorney Ray Gricar hasn't been seen since leaving work in 2005, seven years after he decided against charging Sandusky after a boy's mother complained to State College police about abuse.

Current District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller formed a task force in 2010 to investigate Gricar's disappearance, but state police from Hollidaysburg are taking over at the request of Bellefonte police.

Bellefonte Chief Shawn Weaver says state police have more resources to devote to the investigation and hopes having another agency take a fresh look at the case might generate some leads.
