BANGOR, Maine — The Bangor woman whom police became concerned about Tuesday morning when her daughter called to say she was missing has been found in good condition, Sgt. Paul Edwards said Wednesday.
“Several tips early this morning from concerned citizens who watched media coverage of this incident helped immensely [in] making this outcome a happy and safe one,” he said.
Ann Jones, 71, who has memory problems, was found walking on Cotton Brook Road near Greely’s Landing in Dover-Foxcroft at about 10 a.m. Wednesday.
Detectives from Bangor Police Department, Maine Forest Service, Maine State Police and Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Office were searching the area when three forest rangers found Jones and her vehicle, which was stuck in the mud.
“It appears she probably spent the night in that area,” Edwards said.
Forest Rangers Doug Huettner, Samuel Heffner and Jonathan Hayes found Jones, who has since been reunited with her three worried daughters, he said.
A loved one reached Jones, who lives on Stillwater Avenue, by phone at around 10:30 p.m. Monday but calls to her house Tuesday morning went unanswered, according to Edwards.
Jones’ daughter reported her missing at around 7 a.m. Tuesday and said her mother’s vehicle also was missing, the sergeant said.
