Search continues for missing Monmouth County man

Search efforts are continuing for a Monmouth County man who has been missing for almost a week.



Ross Derose, 59, was last seen by neighbors in the Wanamassa section of Ocean Township last Monday night.



His car and cellphone were found the next night in a resort parking lot in Maine.



"I'm trying to hold it together. I'm keeping positive because I know he's fine, he will come home to us," says Jason Middleton, Derose's partner.



Anyone with information on Deroese's whereabouts is asked to contact the Ocean Township Police Department.
