Police in Orleans County have launched an extensive search for a Medina man who went missing Wednesday night.
39-year-old Patrick Dugan was drinking with friends in the Town of Shelby. Friends said Dugan was depressed.
He just wondered away, into the woods, and hasn’t been seen since.
A four-hour search was conducted yesterday using a State Police helicopter and the Albion Police Department’s K-9 team.
Dugan is a white man, 5ft. 11in tall, 160 pounds with brown-gray hair and blue eyes.
He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a white t-shirt and black boots.
Anyone with information about Patrick Dugan is asked to call the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office at (585) 589-5527.

A new proposal could lead to tuition hikes at SUNY Universities and Colleges.
Under a plan announced by Governor Cuomo, tuition costs would be raised eight-percent annually at the state university's four campus centers, including the University of Buffalo, and five percent annually at SUNY's other 60 colleges.
A tuition increase seems all but certain, with the education committee chairs of the Senate and Assembly recently introducing their own tuition hike plans, though just how much of an increase remains to be seen.
