Search Continues for Missing Elderly Hudson Valley Man
Police are still searching for an elderly Hudson Valley man who went missing months ago.
Just before January 2017, the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office began looking for 76-year-old Lawrence Molinaro of Cochecton. Molinaro was reported missing by his relatives after he missed a doctor’s appointment at Catskill Regional Medical Center in Harris.
He was last seen at his home by a neighbor.
On Sunday, the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office used a scheduled training opportunity on to search the waters of the Delaware River for Molinaro. The Fire Service's Sullivan County Dive Team was scheduled to train in Roscoe, but diverted to the public boat launch in Narrowsburg at the request of Sheriff's Detectives. They were joined by divers from the National Parks Service. (Photos of the search can be seen above)
