MALONE, N.Y.  — New York state troopers with guns drawn were seen searching a cabin in Malone as officers from several state and federal agencies continued their search for the surviving killer who escaped from a maximum-security prison more than three weeks ago.

A steady rain continued Sunday as police dogs and their handlers pushed through dense woods checking hunting camps and following up on tips after an overnight search revealed no new signs of David Sweat.

About 1,200 searchers continued to focus on 22 square miles around where Sweat’s fellow escapee, Richard Matt, was shot to death by officers on Friday.

The two fled the Clinton Correctional Facility on June 6.
