SEEKING THE PUBLIC’S HELP -- A message board heading out West Main Street in Milo on July 1 reads “Manhunt underway in Parkman area call 9-1-1 with tips” as search efforts continue to capture Robert Burton, wanted for murder in the death of his ex-girlfriend last month. Highway message boards have been located in five area towns aimed at warning vacationers of the manhunt. The Maine Department of Transportation also posted signs in Newport, Athens, Charleston and Monson, along all of the major roads that lead into the Parkman-Guilford area. Area residents are continued to be advised to report immediately any suspicious activity. Search efforts to locate Burton will continue by State Police, the Piscataquis Sheriff’s Office and the Maine Warden Service. The phone numbers to call are the State Police in Bangor at 973-3700 or 911.
