The Quincy Police Department is still searching for a man who robbed the First Mid-Illinois Bank & Trust branch at 3233 Broadway on Wednesday. An undisclosed amount of cash was taken by a man described as a black male in his mid- to late-20s, about 6 feet tall with a thin build.

Police investigators are working with the Illinois Statewide Terrorism and Intelligence Center, the FBI and police agencies in Missouri, Iowa and Illinois. Investigators are looking at a possible correlation between Wednesday's holdup and bank robberies in Illinois, Missouri and Iowa since late November.

Anyone with information about the holdup should contact the Quincy Police Department at (217) 228-4470 or Quincy Regional Crime Stoppers at (217) 228-4474.

Tony Baker recently watched a video of the 1991 Class A state championship game with his 11-year-old daughter. It had been several years since Baker, an all-stater as a senior at Pittsfield High School, had seen the game. "I sure was awful skinny, and those shorts were awful short," he said with a laugh. "But it was neat to watch. It's kind of a blur, but I can remember plays that were called in every game. It's so surreal."
