GLENBURN, Maine — Police conducted a welfare check at a Glenburn residence Monday morning after concerning messages were left on an answering machine, according to the Penobscot County sheriff’s office.

Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Manansis View shortly before 9:30 a.m. after police learned a female employee at an undisclosed business left a concerning message, Chief Deputy Troy Morton said.

Morton did not disclose the woman’s name.

Employees had become worried when the woman did not arrive at work Monday, Morton said. The woman’s estranged husband and children live at the residence but were not at home at the time.

Morton said the woman was located when sheriff’s deputies learned she had been taken into custody in Houlton. The chief deputy added she was taken into custody on an unrelated issue.
