Remains Found in Bangor are a Portland Woman Missing for 3 Years
A set of remains found off Odlin Road in Bangor have been identified as a Portland woman who's been missing for 3 years.
Cathy Pride was a 63-year-old resident of Portland's Munjoy Hill when she went missing, with the last known sighting of her in mid-April of 2019. Family members described her as a very private person, who kept to herself much of the time. Still, it was concerning when it appeared that she hadn't been back to her home in several weeks, so her family reported her missing on May 8th, 2019.
Portland Police say her family finally got some closure, nearly 3 years later, when her remains were recovered on April 5th, 2022 in a wooded area off of Odlin Road in Bangor. A passerby spotted her remains and contacted authorities.
Bangor Police have been working with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to identify Pride's remains and how she died. So far, there's no indication of the cause of death but police say they don't suspect foul play.
