COOLBAUGH TOWNSHIP, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) — The search resumed Monday for a missing man in Monroe County. Police spent the last three days at Brady’s Lake with their eyes peeled searching for 72-year-old Ronald Nicholas and his Blue Heeler dog, Cole.

Nicholas was last heard from on Monday, April 5.

There is video of him entering Brady’s Lake in his pickup truck. A fisherman identified that truck on Saturday, spurring the search around Brady’s Lake.

For the past three days, Nicholas’ family have been sitting in their cars at the scene, waiting for any news about Nicholas.

There has been one confirmed sighting of Nicholas. He was seen walking along Brady’s Lake Road on Tuesday with Cole.

He was described wearing a wind breaker or jacket and a baseball cap.

Officials are using every tool possible, from helicopters to search dogs, to try and track Nicholas down over the past few days.

Nicholas’ daughter, Sandra Snyder, is hopeful he will be found.

“I think it’d be a shame to not have hope. You know we understand the conditions, we understand the situation but I think there’s information out there to be found. And we’re gonna simply focus on that today, to see if there’s anything else that will help us connect a few dots, even to understand the route,” she said.

Officials ask that you let them know if you have any information regarding Nicholas’ whereabouts.

“I think there’s information out there to be found and we’re going to simply focus on that today to see if there’s anything else that will help us connect a few dots… And to understand the route and we’ll take one thing at a time,” Nicholas’ daughter said.

Officials tell Eyewitness News that they found a gray leash while searching for Nicholas and his dog Sunday. His family is confident that it belongs to Nicholas’ dog Cole.
