***Update: This from Senator Cushing: My family and the Crommett family are grateful to all those who have offered their comforting thoughts prayers and assistance. Unfortunately, it appears that the search is over and the results are not what we hoped for.

To the members of the authorities: Maine State Police, Penobscot County Sheriff's , and the Maine Warden's Service, who are also dealing with their own loss at this time of Major Greg Sanborn, you have our thanks for your compassion and professionalism in this difficult time. Our thanks as well to the many friends and colleagues who volunteered their time and helped with the search.

Police and Game Wardens are searching as many roads as possible hoping to find a man who hasn't been seen or heard from since leaving his home around 5am this morning in Passadumkeag.

75 year old Gerald Cromment was headed for work in Enfield in a Blue GMC pickup. It bears a Maine Commercial Plate with number 794098.

Cromment is the father-in-law of State Senator Andre Cushing of Hampden.  We're told Cromment does have a medical condition.

The Penobscot County Sheriff's Department tells us they do NOT need volunteers at this time to help with the search. If you do have helpful information you're ask to call 945-4636.
