SKOWHEGAN, Maine — Skowhegan police, Maine State Police and the Maine Warden Service on Monday searched a wooded location for a local man missing since Friday.

Vaughn Giggey, 40, was last heard from about 10 p.m. Friday, when he left his Main Street home to walk to the Chamberlain Street home of his mother, according to Skowhegan police Chief Ted Blais.

Brandy Remmers, Giggey’s girlfriend, reported him missing at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Blais said.

“He was going to walk to his mom’s house, which is only a few blocks away. He never made it there,” said Blais.

Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said the missing person investigation is being led by the Skowhegan Police Department, but state police have dispatched a detective to assist.

“One detective has been briefed by [Skowhegan police],” McCausland said. “Typically on a missing person case, a detective will be briefed to make sure we’ve got the information and offer any assistance if needed.”

Cpl. John MacDonald of the Maine Warden Service said in an email that wardens are assisting in the search as well.

Blais said two Skowhegan detectives are dedicated to the case.

“We’re looking around the neighborhood to see if he’s around. The search will continue into tomorrow,” Blais said. “No leads have surfaced, but there’s no sign of foul play at this point.”

Anyone with information regarding Giggey should call the Skowhegan Police Department at 474-6908.
