An international search is on for a local librarian accused of rape.
The Warren County D.A.'s office tells our media partners at The Post Star that 22-year-old Abby Berkheimer of Queensbury has fled the country.
Police say Bernheimer met a 15-year-old boy while working at the library. She was arrested in February on a rape charge after the boy was found at her home.
She's been free on bail since.
Prosecutors say she was supposed to be in court last week to plead guilty but never show up.
And now they've learned she took off for France.
Her lawyer is trying to convince her to come back.
