    Details of Disappearance

    Schaff was last seen near the New York/Vermont state border after he got into a fight at the Riverside Pub on west Main Street in Granville, New York at approximately 5:00 a.m. on January 18, 2014. He sustained scalp lacerations during the fight, and his glasses were broken. Two people offered Schaff a ride and they were going to their car when Schaff walked ahead of them and vanished. He has never been heard from again and an extensive search of the area turned up no sign of him. His cellular phone was found a few days later in an abandoned car lot at Loomis Trucking on Route 149 in Pawlet, Vermont, next to the Mettawee River.

    If Schaff was outdoors in the cold weather without shelter, he would not have survived long. It's uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning. His case remains unsolved.
