Search for missing man continues

T he search for a Fair Haven man who went missing in Granville several weeks ago continue to be fruitless.

Jonathan Schaff, 23, has not been seen since early on the morning of Jan.18, when he kept walking past a couple he was with and disappeared on Route 149 near the Vermont border. He had been in a fight at a bar prior to his disappearance, during which his glasses were broken.

All that showed up after several days was Schaff’s cellphone in an abandoned vehicle located at Loomis Trucking on State Route 149 in Vermont, an area where a number of abandoned cars and trucks are parked.

The area where the cellphone was found is the same location Schaff was walking when he disappeared, according to Vermont State Police.

Last Thursday, Vermont State Police continued their search efforts with a SCUBA team and a K-9 unit, which conducted an extensive search of the Mettawee River in Pawlet. The search location was based around where Schaff’s phone was located, but he was not found.

Police said the SCUBA team was not able to put divers in the water because of thick ice and shallow water. They instead searched the area with specialized video equipment.

Detectives from the Granville Police Department, New York State Police and Vermont State Police continue to investigate the case.

Anyone with information regarding Schaff’s disappearance is asked to call 802-773-9101 or submit an anonymous tip to www.vtips.info<http://www.vtips.info/> or send a text to “CRIMES” (274637) with keyword: VTIPS or call the Granville Police Department at 518-642-1234.
