GLENBURN, Maine — Police are investigating the reported disappearance of a 15-year-old girl from Glenburn.
Nichole Cable was last seen on Route 221 in her hometown on Sunday, according to Penobscot County Sheriff Glenn Ross.
Ross said Tuesday his department is working with numerous other agencies in the area to find Cable. No other information is being released while police continue to investigate.
Cable’s parents, Jason and Kristine Willey, have turned to social media in hopes that their daughter will return home safely. A Facebook group, “Bring Nichole Cable Home,” had 282 members as of 4 p.m. Tuesday.
“We have not heard any word from her through social media or friends,” Jason Willey said Tuesday. “Her phone’s been shut off. We just don’t know what else to do.”
Police agencies as far north as Ellsworth and stretching south to Scarborough have also shared information including Cable’s description on Facebook.
Cable has light brown hair and blue eyes and weighs 90 pounds, according to Ross. She was last seen wearing a pair of jeans and a pink sweatshirt, her father said.
She was last seen at 9 p.m. on Sunday, said Chief Deputy Troy Morton.
“Her parents immediately reported this to us once they knew that she was missing,” said Morton. “The sheriff’s office responded to that complaint and we’ve continued to do our investigations. We are using outside resources such as the Internet and phone capabilities in an attempt to locate her.”
Maine State Police and the Bangor Police Department have aided the sheriff’s department, he said.
Morton said he could not release any more information about the investigation.
“We are concerned. The parents are very concerned,” Morton said. “We are working closely with the family and friends and we just need to locate her as soon as we can.”
Anyone with information on Cable’s whereabouts should contact the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department at 947-4585.
