SKOWHEGAN, Maine — Authorities in Maine are looking for a 15-year-old Skowhegan girl who has been missing since late October.

Police told the Morning Sentinel that Samantha Quimby was last seen at her mother’s home on Oct. 25, just hours after police tracked her down after she allegedly ran away from a foster home.

Police say they are concerned because Quimby is under a protection from abuse order issued last week following a request from the Department of Health and Human Services. The order names a relative who is not supposed to have contact with her.

She was last seen wearing a gray sweatpants and a purple zip-up sweatshirt. She weighs about 100 pounds and has long blond hair.

Anyone who sees her is asked to call police.
