GRANVILLE, N.Y. – Granville Police are searching for a man who went missing after an altercation at a bar.
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 allegedly involved in a physical altercation at the Riverside Pub where a family member says he received a head laceration and his glasses were broken.
He was last seen walking toward the state line with a couple who had parked their car on Route 149. The couple told police that Schaff walked on after they stopped to smoke, and then disappeared in a dip in the road.
The 23-year-old Vermont man never showed up at his home or his job at a local Walmart.
Police do not suspect foul play at this time, stating that they got a ping off his cell phone around the time he disappeared, but there has not been any activity on the device since.
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.
