    NY - Jonathan Schaff, 23, Granville, 18 Jan 2014



    http://www.fox23news.com/news/local/...G4_rJai3Q.cspx

    Jonathan Schaff was last seen around 4:30 a.m. on January 18 walking east on East Main Street in the Town of Granville.

    Schaff was involved in a physical altercation at the Riverside Pub where he allegedly received a head laceration and his glasses were broken.

    Schaff is described as a white male, approximately six feet tall and weighing around 170 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes. Schaff was last seen wearing either a gray hooded sweatshirt or dark brown Carhart jacket, dark colored blue jeans and brown work boots.

    Police have been searching for Schaff by foot and with a K-9 unit in the Granville, N.Y. and Pawlet, Vt. area. Cell phone data places Schaff possibly in the area of Sheldons Concrete or Newmont Slate Company on State Route 149 in Pawlet, Vt.

    The West Pawlet, Granville and West Fire Departments; the Granville Rescue Squad; the Vermont State Police K-9 Unit; the Vermont State Police; and the Granville Police Department are participating in the investigation and search efforts.

    Hope they find him safe, that head laceration could be indicative of a brain trauma

    Police said Schaff and two friends had parked a car at Loomis Trucking, near the state line, and walked a half-mile or so to the Granville bar.

    As they were later returning to the car, two of the men stopped for a cigarette break along the road and Schaff continued walking, Granville Police Chief Ernie Bassett said. It appears they were over the Vermont line when they stopped.

    "There's a dip in the road and they lost sight of him. When they got to the car he was not there and they couldn't find him," Bassett said.

    Why would they park in VT and walk across the border to NY? Also, Why would they stop along the way for a cigarette break??? The smokers I know would walk and smoke at the same time?!?

    That would make a lot more sense! I hope LE checked the pings on the friends phones to see if it corresponds to time/location they stated.

    Apparently many different groups, organisations, and volunteers are involved in the search according this article:

    I hope that they can locate him soon.

    Does anyone know how closely they can narrow down the area a phone pings in?
    Did the phone ping in the area of the pub that night indicating he had the phone with him?



    I would like to hear more about the vehicle the phone was found in. It says an "abandoned vehicle".

    Was it a working car or broken down?
    Was it locked?
    How long had the car been there? Was it abandoned that night?
    Was the car ever reported stolen?

    Dozens of searchers from New York and New England returned to an area along the state line that is dotted with slate quarries and streams, looking for clues as to where Schaff has gone. The search expanded to an area north along county Route 25 and Vermont Route 31 later Monday, after cell phone data potentially placed his phone further north, police said. It was unclear what the time frame was for the phone data, however.
    http://poststar.com/news/local/polic...a4bcf887a.html

    So the phone traveled from the bar area to Route 25 and 31 and then back to Loomis trucking where it ended up in an abandoned car?

    Vermont State Police had hoped to bring in divers on Wednesday to search the Mettawee River adjacent to the parking lot where Schaff was headed and where his phone was located.

    Granville Police Chief Ernie Bassett said there is a deep pool in the river near the parking lot that police hope to have divers check.

    But the cold weather had resulted in the diving effort being postponed as of Wednesday. Vermont State Police Capt. Donald Patch said the potential use of divers was under discussion Wednesday.
