TOPSHAM, Maine — Topsham police say a local teenager missing for two days was trapped in her car in a ravine.

Reports say Officer Troy Garrison found 17-year-old Kourtney Thibeault over an embankment early Friday after he noticed what appeared to be fresh damage to a large tree off Roberts Hill Road in Topsham.

Police later found Thibeault inside the vehicle. She was alert and immediately began speaking to Garrison.

She was freed from the wreckage and taken to the Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. A hospital spokeswoman said Friday that Thibeault’s family asked that no information be released about her condition.

Police said Thibeault left home on Tuesday to travel to a class in Auburn. She had not been heard from since 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.
