According to Sheriff Jeffrey J. Murphy, on Friday June 18, 2021 at about 2:54 PM, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a missing person in the Town of Granville. The report came from a motorcyclist advising that had been riding with a friend, later identified as Lawrence Feola, age 63, of Granville, NY, who had been operating his own motorcycle on State Route 149 from Granville to Hartford. At some point, the friend noticed that Feola was no longer in sight and became concerned.
The friend began looking for Feola and stopped at the Granville Police Department to report it. Sheriffs Deputies responded to interview the friend and began an extensive search of an approximate 5 mile stretch of State Route 149 where Feola was believed to have been last seen. Granville and Hartford Fire Departments as well as officials from ENCON also responded to assist in an attempt to locate Feola.
At about 5:35 PM, Feola was located deceased at a crash site which was well off the roadway and down an embankment along State Route 149 in Granville near Lily Pond Road. The circumstances surrounding the accident are under investigation by Sheriffs Investigators.
