SAND LAKE, N.Y. – A walking and driving search, open to anyone willing to help, began at 8:30 a.m. Saturday to search for a missing Rensselaer County man.
The Rensselaer County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in finding a missing person: 28-year-old Ryan Patton, of Momrow Road in the Town of Sand Lake.
Patton was last seen leaving the Lakeview Inn in Averill Park around 10:45 p.m. Monday night in his 2000 maroon Chevrolet Silverado truck with a NY registration DKK4754.
No family or friends have heard from him, and he failed to report to his job at Phelps Brothers Roofing.

The Sheriff's Office is being assisted by the New York State Police Aviation Unit, who flew a helicopter over the Sand Lake area to search for Patton.
