Warm weather is making it possible today for dive teams and other officials from both states to participate in the search in Pawlet, Vermont, and Granville, N.Y.
More than 30 New York State Police recruits will be assisting with the ground search.
Jonathan Schaff was last seen early on Jan. 18 walking on Route 149 near the New York-Vermont line. Police say he had been involved in a fight in a Granville bar and suffered a head injury and broken glasses.
State Police from both states will continue to investigate along with the Granville Police Department.MORE IN This Just In
