Harmony Woman Located after Night-Long Search
Augusta, Maine - An 85-year-old Harmony woman who was reported missing late Wednesday night by a relative was found this morning about a quarter-mile from her home.
Idyllene Warren, 85, was last in contact with her family member on Tuesday from her Brown Road home in Harmony. The relative told game wardens she did not hear from her loved one on Wednesday, became concerned, went to her home and found that she wasn’t there.
The Maine Warden Service was called about 11 p.m., and initiated a ground search with four game wardens, including a K-9 team, and an air search using the FLIR system, an infrared unit that can detect humans. Harmony Fire and Ambulance also responded. Today, the Maine Forest Service and Maine Search and Rescue Dogs were en route to assist in the search.
MWS Chief Pilot Charlie Later located Mrs. Warren lying on a rocky hedgerow at approximately 7:55 a.m. today. She was transported to Redington-Fairview General Hospital in Skowhegan for evaluation.
“During a search and rescue, we depend on our resources to help bring someone home, from trained and certified personnel on the ground to pilots in the air,” said MWS Lt. Kevin Adam. “Once again, our plane assets are an invaluable tool in a search. Our pilots also have keen eyes. Pilot Later was able to locate and identify a small object in a wooded environment while flying at over 100 miles per hour. Those are not easy tasks to perform.”
