NEW YORK (AP) — John Walsh and his long running television show "America's Most Wanted" are still helping solve crimes in New York City.

The team was in New York recently to film new episodes to help locate fugitives wanted by federal and local authorities. After more than two decades on the air, the show is proving it's still a venerable crime-fighting tool, whether on air in its new Lifetime network slot, or online.

There are more than 600,000 monthly visits to the site, and at least 40 captures came from online tips.

One fugitive, Danny Williams, made two appearances on the show after a 2002 shooting at a barbecue. He was captured in 2010 and sentenced to 50 years recently after he was convicted of murder.
