Nye pleaded guilty in Columbia County Court to multiple sex offenses and was sent to the Capital District Psychiatric Center in Albany as he awaited sentencing.

However, he escaped from the center more than a year later and hasn't been seen since.

Investigators say he still has family in this area and may have fled to Canada.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to give state police a call.
