TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The North Greenbush Police Department have located a woman who left the Cumberland Farms location at 499 North Greenbush Road (Route 4) around 2 a.m. Sunday.
Susan Cramer-Machia was identified as the missing person earlier Sunday morning and had not been heard from since.
She lives resides on 2nd Avenue in Troy and was last seen wearing a dark color North Face jacket, blue jeans and no foot wear. Cramer-Machia has a tatoo on her chest of angel’s wings.
At 5:50 p.m., she was located by members of the North Greenbush Police Department, including the NYS Police BCI Unit from the Schodack area.
Cramer-Machia was found in a ravine near a Sunoco Gas Station on State Route 4 in North Greenbush.
In statement, Chief Robert Durivage said:
“At the time she was located by North Greenbush Officer John Hudson and NYSP Sr. Investigator Eric Cullum, she was barely conscious. At least 9 police officers, combined from North Greenbush Police and the New York State Police BCI removed her approximately 30 feet from the bottom of the ravine up to the street for the Fire and Ambulance crews. I call it perseverance by law enforcement. Cross your “T”s and dot your “I”s and then go back and do it again. Because that’s what we did in this investigation. Earlier in the day, we searched areas with search dogs and also had a New York State Police aviation helicopter deployed but did not locate Mrs. Machia. Our investigative team then decided to expand the search and started checking other possible paths that Mrs. Machia could have taken and we knew that time was of the essence and we weren’t going to wait for daylight. North Greenbush Ambulance transported her to Albany Medical Center and she is being treated at this time for severe hypothermia.”
