Local investigators are tapping into additional resources as they continue to look into a strange story we first brought you last week.
The Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office first got involved last Monday, when a woman reported that she was approached by a man in Newfield.
That man gave her a flyer that talked about his desire to start a commune with 13 young, white, girls, ages 8 and up.
Ithaca Police were already aware of sightings of the man in the city, including near the Cornell campus.
Sheriff’s investigators say they’re asking the State Police and FBI for help as well, but aren’t sure if the man involved is still in the area.
