In Swampscott, Sgt. Tim Cassidy said he had heard rumors of a local sighting of Linscott and Dow on Tuesday, but that his department hadn’t received any reports.
“No one called us on it,” Cassidy said.
On Wednesday, Rockingham (N.H.) County Attorney Jim Reams held a news conference and delivered a strong message to the fugitives.
“No matter where you go, we’re going to find you,” he said.
Reams also said that he suspects Linscott and Dow are still in the area and could be receiving help from friends and relatives. He maintains hope that the couple will turn themselves in.
Massachusetts State Police and the Rockingham County Attorney’s office did not return calls seeking comment yesterday.
Anyone with information on the couple’s whereabouts is asked to call Plaistow police at 603-382-6816.
