Wellsville reacts to Ceglia disappearance


WELLSVILLE, NY – Two On Your Side's Jeff Preval spent the day Friday talking to residents of the Town of Wellsville in Allegany County. Just about everyone we talked to knows about the Paul Ceglia case, and they all have opinions about him.

Those opinions are getting stronger.

Not only is Ceglia at the center of an alleged scheme to defraud Facebook, but he's also got the title of being a fugitive.

That has people paying attention.

What concerns neighbors is that his wife and two boys are also missing.

"As far as his wife and children go, I hope no harm has come to them," said Judy Coen. "I hope they find his kids. I can't imagine him doing it to his family his parents or his children. It just doesn't make any sense."

Jamestown, NY – The Audubon Nature Center took time out recently to celebrate their long association with one of Jamestown, New York’s most distinguished citizens, B. Dolores Thompson.
