CAMERON PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Thursday marks three years since authorities say Joe Constance shot and killed his estranged wife Mary Duhon at her home and disappeared without a trace.

KPLC's Lee Peck looks at the ongoing search for Constance, who is still considered armed, dangerous and on the run.

"We've pulled out all of the stops. We have done everything that we possibly can and used every resource that we can to try to come up with Joe Constance ... and we have not been able to (find him) yet," said Sheriff Tony Mancuso with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

The original 911 call launched a full scale search by air, land and boat in the swamps, bayous and wooded areas of Cameron Parish, but no sign of Constance was found. The search has since expanded to Canada, Mexico and everything in between.

"Truly when we found the circumstances the way they were... we thought we were going to find him in those woods, deceased of possibly a suicide, and we searched, as you know, for several days," Mancuso said.

Constance was profiled on America's Most Wanted, and that generated some very strong leads -- some as recently as two months ago.

"We have had some legitimate -- what I would call -- legitimate leads. So, yeah I think he is still alive," said Mancuso.

The search for Constance continues, and the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office says they are working closely with the U.S. Marshal's Office and the FBI on the case.
