STERLING, Conn. (WTNH) — Connecticut State Police expand their search for a dirt bike rider who disappeared Monday after texting his girlfriend that he had fallen off his motorcycle and hurt his leg.
New information has lead state police to South Killingly where K-9 units searched for any sign of Todd Allen who is known by friends as TJ.
“I think people have been amazing,” says TJ’s mother Christina Moses. “Just amazing some of the people don’t even know him.”
On Thursday Moses talks with some of her son’s friends who stopped by her house on a break during their non-stop search for him.
“I want I want to go see him,” Moses says through tears. “Even when they find him and they bring him to the hospital that’s all I want is him back.”
“If it were me, and I know Todd would think the same way, I would dump the bike over and pull the gas line pour it over whatever I could and light it on fire,” says TJ’s friend Donald Johnson.
Day five and still no signs of TJ or his bike and the last text message simply said he had hurt his leg but had no helpful information.
“Things don’t add up something’s not right,” says Johnson who wonders if foul play is involved.
“I’ve had people shoot at me up there,” says Johnson who described a run in he had with hunters. “Uhh I think they were more just pissed off cause yeah we were scaring their animals off that they were trying to hunt.”
Johnson headed back into the woods on the back of an ATV in a search for answers and a search for a friend.
“I still have a lot of hope,” says Moses. “I feel like it’s not time to cry.”
