BANGOR, Maine — An “at risk” female Dorothea Dix Psychiatric Center patient who was reported missing Tuesday afternoon has been located, a Maine State Police dispatcher confirmed Tuesday night.

The woman’s temporary disappearance prompted a search by police and three volunteer search teams from the Down East Emergency Medical Institute.
