ELLSWORTH, Maine — A missing Lubec woman was found early Wednesday morning in Ellsworth.

Janet Rier, 56, who was reported missing Tuesday afternoon, was located near Route 179 at 7 a.m., according to Cpl. John MacDonald of the Maine Warden Service.

Rier was in good condition when game wardens found her, MacDonald said. She stated to game wardens she had been camping in the woods.
