Maine Game Wardens and local Police are concentrating their search for two missing women in the Springfield area, where they were last seen.

Why Do Police Think They Went to Springfield?

The latest sighting of Kimberly Pushard and Angela Bussell was in Springfield, Maine on Wednesday. At approximately 10 a.m. that day, the pair was spotted at the Irving gas station on Route 6. After some consideration, police have concluded that the women, both of whom have intellectual disabilities, may have confused Topsfield and Topsham, which is where they live. They could be trying to get home via I-95 or Route 1. The distance between those two communities is roughly 200 miles.

What Are They Driving?

Members of the Indian Township Police Department and Maine Warden Service will be searching that area, in hopes of finding the women and/or their vehicle. People traveling over the weekend, in that or any area of Maine, are also urged to watch for a red Jeep Compass, with Maine license plate number 1960 VC. Anyone who sees the women is urged to call 911 immediately.

How Long Have They Been Missing?

A Silver Alert has been issued for the women, who have been missing for several days. It was early afternoon on Tuesday when Angela and Kimberly decided to drive to the Maine Mall. Somehow they got lost and drove into Massachusetts before calling family members, who tried to direct them home. They made it as far as Exeter New Hampshire, where they contacted police for directions but the call was dropped. A New Hampshire State Trooper directed them to I-95 northbound on Tuesday evening and the women weren't heard from again until they were seen in Springfield, Maine on Wednesday morning. The fact that they drove past the Topsham area and headed so far north has led police to believe they got it confused with Topsfield. There have been no confirmed sightings of them since.

We'll update this story as more information becomes available.
