Craig Rideout's 2010 gray Honda Odyssey (NY plate CTR-2094) was located this morning by investigators assigned to the case. The vehicle was located at the Bushnell's Basin Park & Ride lot located on Route 96 near Route 490. If anyone observed this vehicle over the last week, please call 911. Note the distinguishing gray duct tape on the front bumper passenger side of the vehicle.

Monroe County Deputies have located the 2010 gray Honda Odyssey belonging to Craig Rideout, whose body was found in the woods near Adams Road in the Town of Jerusalem July 20.

Investigators from Yates and Monroe County had been searching for the vehicle since last week, after Rideout was reported missing and the body, which two days later was identified as his, was discovered at about 8 a.m.

Monroe County officials say the vehicle was located Tuesday, July 26 by investigators assigned to the case at the Bushnell's Basin Park & Ride lot located on Route 96 near Route 490 in Monroe County. The vehicle will be processed by technicians.

Yates County Sheriff Ron Spike said investigators believe the vehicle was one of two that was seen by witnesses on Adams Road last Wednesday morning.

In other developments related to the case, Alexander, 19, and Colin, 22, Rideout, sons of Craig Rideout, were released on bail from Monroe County Jail Monday, July 25. The two had been aprehended by Monroe County Deputies as they were reportedly in the act of discarding items into a pond at Mendon Ponds Park in Perinton.

Spike says the materials they were throwing in the pond were linked to the Adams Road crime scene.

The brothers were charged with felony tampering with evidence and sent to the jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond. Their mother, Laura Rideout, 45, also of Perinton, was charged with second degree burglary and tampering with evidence for her unauthorized entry into Craig Rideout's apartment July 21. She was released on bail the next day.

Spike says the investigation and prosecution of the case will continue under the direction of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office and Monroe County District Attorney's office.

Yates County officials will continue to participate in a supportive role.
