The Habersham County Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday they are running off no new leads, but are continuing the search for a Lawrenceville man last seen in January.

Joel Rosenbaum, 65, of Lawrenceville was last seen on Jan. 26 at 7 p.m. passing by a Chevron gas station at the square on Monroe Street in Clarkesville. Habersham County officials report the store is in proximity to the county detention center, which is where Rosenbaum was seen half an hour earlier at 6:30 p.m. that night.

Sheriff’s office personnel were joined by tracking dogs Tuesday to cover the area again where Rosenbaum was last seen, as well as to examine other locations he might be.

“After a thorough search of the area from the sheriff’s office to the Clarkesville square, down into Pitts Park, and along the river, we are confident he is not in the area that was searched today—and that’s the area surrounding the last place we can confirm he was,” said Sheriff Joey Terrell. “The tracking dogs did not alert and there were no visual clues that he had been in that area.”

According to a release, investigators made use of a tracking team in the Cornelia area as well, as they searched several unoccupied buildings and campsites.

Rosenbaum reportedly has served as a well-known bartender at a country club in Johns Creek.

Habersham County officials ask anyone with information to contact investigator George Cason at (706) 839-0560 or submit an online tip.
