Maine Warden Service Looking for Missing Freeport Woman [UPDATE]
The Maine Warden Service is looking for a Freeport woman who went out for a walk and never came home.
UPDATE: The Maine Warden service reports Dowling was found alive early Tuesday morning by Warden Kris McCabe and his K9 Morgan, about 300 feet behind her home. She was disoriented, but able to walk out with some assistance.
Officials say 62-year-old Sarah Dowling left a note at her home on the Desert Road in Freeport, sometime between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. Monday morning, saying she was going for a walk. When she didn't return, her family became alarmed because Dowling is a diabetic, who can become disoriented when not able to take her medication. She is known to frequently walk on the roads near her home.
Sarah Dowling is described as 5'6" tall, weighing approximately 200 pounds, and has gray hair. Her family says she's likely to be wearing jeans, gray/bluish sneakers, and glasses.
A search has been launched, including members of the Maine Warden Service, Brunswick and Freeport Police Departments, and dozens of volunteers and family. Searchers are combing the area on foot, with help from K9 units, and through the use of drones.
Anyone with information about Dowling's whereabouts is asked to contact the Maine State Police Dispatch in Augusta at 207062407076 or Freeport Police Department Dispacth at 207-865-4800.
