BANGOR, Maine — Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a 71-year-old woman who has memory problems and is missing from her Stillwater Avenue apartment, where she lived alone, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday.
A loved one called Ann Jones, who lives at 321 Stillwater Ave., at around 10:30 Monday night and checked on her again Tuesday morning to find her missing, Edwards said.
“Sometime between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. she left,” the sergeant said. “With the memory issues, who knows what’s going on.”
Jones’ daughter reported her mother missing at around 7 a.m. and said that her mother’s vehicle, which the daughter said she does not have keys to, also was missing, Edwards said.
Jones is described as a 4-foot 10-inch white woman who weighs about 90 pounds, has dark hair and wears glasses. The missing car is a white 1999 Subaru Legacy station wagon with the Maine registration number 5781 IY.
Police went to Jones’ house Tuesday morning and there were no obvious signs of a break-in or anything suspicious, Edwards said. It’s not clear to police how her vehicle was moved, he said.
“She either had a set [of keys] hidden or someone else is involved, which then makes it more suspicious,” the sergeant said.
Jones, who is originally from Augusta, likes to travel to Lincolnville Beach, just north of Camden, so police along the Maine coast have been told to be on the lookout for her or her vehicle, Edwards said.
Those with information about Jones’ whereabouts or who see her or her Subaru are urged to call the Bangor Police Department at 947-7382 or their local police department.
