BREWER, Maine — The mother of a 16-year-old girl who attends Brewer High School called police late Friday night to report her daughter missing after she didn’t return home after a school dance, Brewer police Sgt. David Lord said Saturday.

“They found her at her boyfriend’s and she had been drinking,” Lord said.

The girl’s mother called police at around 11:40 p.m. Friday.

The girl, who was not identified because she is a juvenile, was charged with illegal possession of alcohol by a minor, Lord said.

Details about who provided the alcohol to the minors were not listed in the police report, the sergeant said, adding the girl’s boyfriend was not charged.

“She was brought straight home,” Lord said.
