OPPENHEIM - A large New York State Police presence could be seen for hours Tuesday evening along Kringsbush Road in Oppenheim, and it may be related to the disappearance of 21-year-old Michaela MacVilla of St. Johnsville.

Michaela's mother, Samantha Jump, tells NEWSChannel 2 that her family has been in contact with state police and they're waiting for information about what is going on behind the police blockade in Oppenheim.

Police have an area near Kringsbush and Baum roads blocked off. They would not let our camera crew close to the scene.

We have been referred to the public information officer for State Police Troop G out of Schenectady, but so far have not received a call back.

MacVilla was last seen leaving her job at the Stewart's on West Main Street in St. Johnsville one week ago. Micheala's mother says she was working 4 p.m. to midnight and she usually walks home, which is just a few blocks away from Stewart's.

State police had a separate presence at a home on Inghams Mills Road in St. Johnsville on Monday.

According to our sister station WRGB in Albany, police were responding to a tip about the disappearance of MacVilla on Monday and ended up arresting a man who lives in the home they responded to. Daniel Nellis was taken into custody and charged with misdemeanors for gun possession, but police say the gun charges are unrelated to the investigation regarding MacVilla's disappearance.

If anyone has information on the whereabouts of 21-year-old Michaela MacVilla, you're asked to contact New York State Police at 518-783-3211.
