AVERILL, Vt. (AP) - State Police say they are continuing to look for the owner of a home that was destroyed by a suspected arson fire in the northern Vermont town of Averill.

Members of the State Police, Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department, U.S. Border Patrol, local fire department and search dogs looked for Labonte on Monday near his home and where his truck was found off Cannan Hill Road in the woods.

Police say the search will continue Thursday.

Labonte is described as being about 6-feet tall, weighing 160 pounds and is an avid outdoorsman. Anyone who comes in contact with Labonte or who has information about the incident is asked to contact the Vermont State Police barracks in Derby.
